Welcome to a new series here at Cinematical where we'll shine a spotlight on different films premiering at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival in January.

Continuing along in our exclusive Sundance Primer series, next we have the film Bass Ackwards, which will be premiering in the brand new NEXT category later this month. This year's NEXT category features 8 films, and all of them were made with a low-to-no budget, a requirement of the category. Curious to learn a little more about the films screening in this category, we spoke with Bass Ackwards' writer-director Linas Phillips and asked him a few questions about his movie.

Cinematical: Give us the "dude on the street" description of your film

LP: The film is about a guy, a sorta lost soul type who's a wedding videographer having an affair with a married woman. That falls apart and he gets kicked out of his friend's place who he was staying with. But when someone gives him a van, he decides to drive back to the east coast to live with his parents. And on the road he meets some people that help him fall back in love with life again.
