Old School

So Wrong They're Right chronicles a 10,000 mile journey around the U.S. in search of "trackers" – fanatical collectors of 8-track tapes, those funky clunky pre-recorded plastic cartridges from the 70s. Directors Russ Forster and Dan Sutherland capture over 20 interviews, brimming with reminiscences, rants, political diatribes, fantasies, fix-it tips, sales pitches, and everything else that defines the skeptical yet inquisitive mind of the 8-track enthusiast. More than a film about pop-music nostalgia, it serves as a statement of outrage from a population of consumers who are tired of being told what to consume.
