The Final Member Trailer

"I've always had a dream of fame and fortune… for Elmo" Today's indie trailer is for a rather awkwardly yet oddly amusing documentary called The Final Member, about the one-and-only Icelandic Phallological Museum that houses the world's largest collection of preserved male genitalia (collected for over 40 years!). So what makes this worthwhile? The story focuses on three people: curator Sigurður "Siggi" Hjartarson, as well as the two eccentric men who want to donate their own specimens to the museum. The doc eventually becomes about the challenges of making a tough decision, and crazy enough, I have to say that this looks fascinating. Best of all, Drafthouse Films is releasing it which means it's certainly unlike anything out there.

Here's the official trailer for Jonah Bekhor & Zach Math's The Final Member, direct from YouTube:

Paris has the Louvre. London has the Tate Modern, and New York the Metropolitan Museum. But Husavik, Iceland—a diminutive village on the fringe of the Arctic Circle—boasts the world's only museum devoted exclusively to painstakingly preserved male genitalia. Founded and curated by Sigurður "Siggi" Hjartarson, the Icelandic Phallological Museum houses four decades worth of mammalian members, from a petite field mouse to the colossal sperm whale, and every "thing" in between. But, lamentably, Siggi’s collection lacks the holy grail of phallic phantasmagoria: a human specimen. Siggi's world changes dramatically when he receives generous offers from an elderly Icelandic Casanova and an eccentric American. Drafthouse Films will open The Final Member in theaters & VOD starting April 18th in spring. Premiered at Hot Docs 2012.
