Chris Trew, Air Sex Championships Host,
"Love & Air Sex"
In director Bryan Poyser’s Austin-set anti-romcom Love & Air Sex, Ashley Bell and Michael Stahl-David play ex-lovers Cathy and Stan, who have left Texas to pursue their dream careers in, respectively, New York and L.A. When filmmaker Stan learns that med student Cathy is going to visit her friends in Austin, he returns home with the intention of mending his broken heart one way or another. Will Cathy’s best friend Kara (Sara Paxton) succeed in keeping Stan away Cathy apart to prevent further heartache? Will Stan’s best friend Jeff (Zach Cregger) win the Air Sex World Championship? Will Kara and Jeff mend their failed relationship? Love & Air Sex screened at last year’s SXSW Film Festival under the title The Bounceback. The new title refers to the subplot that revolves around the Air Sex World Championship, which enjoyed its launch in Austin and now tours the country under the auspices of host and comedian Chris Trew, the cofounder of the New Movement Theater in Austin and New Orleans. Bryan Poyser previously directed Dear Pillow and Lovers of Hate. Love & Air Sex is now available for home viewing via VOD and will open Feb. 14 in Austin. Bryan Poyser and stars Zach Cregger and Sara Paxton will attend the Austin premiere of Love & Air Sex at 8 p.m. Feb. 14 at the Alamo Slaughter Lane, while Cregger and Paxton will serve as judges during the Air Sex Competition to be held at 10:35 p.m. after the screening. Poyser joins Trew during this interview.
