Or, how two noisy neighbours became a cult phenomenon.

When college buddies Eddie Guerriero and Mitch Deprey moved into their first San Francisco apartment and they heard their new neighbours arguing, they did what anyone would do – they surreptitiously recorded them! The arguments were so abusive, horrendous, hilarious and profane, the tapes they made and distributed amongst friends went viral and took on a life of their own. Matthew Bate’s funny and deceptively astute documentary explores some big issues around privacy, voyeurism, copyright and exploitation.
