Finders Keepers Documentary

One man's leg is another man's treasure. The Orchard has revealed the first official trailer for Finders Keepers, one of our favorite documentaries out of the Sundance Film Festival this year. This is one of those so-crazy-you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it true stories about two men from North Carolina fighting over a leg. One of them lost his leg in a tragic and fatal plane crash, and through some weird happenstance, it ended up in the hands of another man, who used it to make himself famous - his life dream. No, seriously. At first he charged money for people to see it, then even got himself on TV shows, and it just went from. It's wild, and this documentary is a heartfelt, honest, and remarkable look at both sides of the story. You have to see this!

Here's the official trailer for Bryan Carberry & J. Clay Tweel's doc Finders Keepers, direct from YouTube:

Finders Keepers Poster

When his amputated leg is discovered in a grill sold at a North Carolina auction, John Wood finds himself at the center of a worldwide media frenzy. Believing the new-found attention to be his chance at doing some great things in an otherwise disappointing, wayward life, he's quickly swept up in the hysteria as the leg's enterprising buyer, Shannon Whisnant, then sues to regain its custody. But the stranger-than-fiction chain of events, fueling John’s drug addiction and compounded by generations of his familial dysfunction, soon sets John on the streets and heading to his certain demise. Just in time, however, another twist in these fantastical occurrences gives John a final shot at becoming whole for the first time in his life. Finders Keepers is co-directed by Bryan Carberry and J. Clay Tweel. The doc first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The Orchard will debut Finders Keepers in select theaters starting September 25th this fall.

    See? This is what I'm talking about, Alex, when I say I appreciate your finding strange, small, off-beat films like this. Man oh man. How in the devil do you come up with these films? While watching this trailer I thought to myself, this just concretizes my feelings of how truly bizarre, immature, childish, and unaware of themselves so many human beings are. A leg? A leg to fame? Crazy, insane stuff. Thanks for the heads up, Alex. I shall look for this on my cable On Demand section.
