Trailer: ‘Beauty Day’ – a Documentary About the original “Jackass”

His cable access television show, The Cap’n Video Show, ran from 1990 to 1995, spawning a small but loyal cult following. Each week Ralph performed a series of idiotic and occasionally dangerous stunts, challenging the sensibilities of his small Southern Ontario audience. With the advent of the internet and reality television still years away, his unique brand of gross-out stunt comedy was truly ahead of its time. All it took was a broken neck for him to get noticed.

That is the description for Beauty Day, a new film by filmmaker Jay Cheel. Sound On Sight Radio listeners might remember Jay, from when he co-hosted an episode of the Sound On Sight podcast a while back. Jay is one third of the crew from the FilmJunk podcast and his latest film looks and sounds amazing. We are going to be keeping a close eye on this film and look forward to hopefully an interviewing with Mr. Cheel sometime in the near future.

If you happen to live in the New York City area, Beauty Day will have its world premiere on Sunday, March 20th at the Museum of Modern Art as part of their Canadian Front screening series. Here are the details:

Sunday, March 20, 2011, 5:30 p.m., Theater 1, T1

Monday, March 21, 2011, 4:00 p.m., Theater 3, mezzanine, Education and Research Building

Beauty Day will have a limited theatrical release in Canada this spring via Ron Mann’s filmswelike and will broadcast on The Movie Network and Movie Central later this year, so stay tuned for more details on that. You can also visit the Beauty Day website for more news and info on more screenings to come. Here is the trailer. Enjoy.
