Twisted: A Balloonamentary
A flying octopus. A Trojan horse. Two 100-foot-tall soccer players. All made out of balloons. These are just some of the masterful creations you will see as Twisted: A Balloonamentary takes you into the heart of Twist and Shout, one of the world's premier balloon twisting conventions.
One young woman learns to twist so she can get out of the trailer park and go to medical school. Another character discovers the gospel with balloons and twists to find salvation and move away from a life of crime. Exploring how the lives of eight balloon twisters are dramatically changed by a little piece of latex, this hilarious and heartwarming film is about passion, salvation, love, death, race, religion, and a whole lot of balloons.
