RED, WHITE & WASTED

Documentary, Politics
Orlando resident Matthew “Video Pat” Burns lives for mudding, where monster-wheeled vehicles twist, slide, and whip up bucketfuls of mud for approving, beer-chugging onlookers. He’s never been the same since Swamp Ghost, the longtime local mudding hangout where Burns shot and then sold mudding videos, became useless after a brush fire raged out of control. And he’s barely making ends meet as a single father of two teenage daughters who are dealing with health and boyfriend issues.

Amid this backdrop Andrei Bowden-Schwartz and Sam B. Jones spend time with Burns, his daughters, friends, and fellow mudding enthusiasts, as his searches for a new place to experience the purity of mudding without rules or admission yields to blocked roads, trespassing warnings, and rising land values in this fast-growing region. Burns begrudgingly decides to check out the Redneck Yacht Club, South Florida’s pay-to-play mudding bastion of outrageous, pre-purgatory mix of drinking, twerking, bare skin, and lots and lots of mud—an excursion that forces Burns to re-examine his life. This jaw-dropping and unapologetic immersion into Florida’s redneck mudding culture lives up to its title, but it also follows one man’s decision to finally accept change and re-adjust his priorities.
