Why would a man want to remove his fully-functional, healthy penis? That’s the focus of an exclusive clip we’re proud to premiere from Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math‘s new film, The Final Member. The documentary, which expands in theaters Friday, is about the world’s only penis museum and the struggle to acquire a human specimen. Two men are in the race to have their penis be the first human penis in the museum and one, an American who has named his member “Elmo,” wants to donate it before he dies.
The film is endlessly surprising and entertaining as it explores this incredible story. Now, Drafthouse Pictures, which is distributing the film, has let /Film debut an exclusive clip. In this sequence, the reason for wanting to remove a live penis is discussed. The clip, visually, is 100% safe for work, but you might want to put in your headphones. Read More »
Here’s an exclusive set of photos from the very funny and oddly touching documentary The Final Member. The film chronicles the efforts of Sigurður “Siggi” Hjartarson to complete the permanent specimen collection at the Icelandic Phallological Museum — his museum dedicated to penises. Yeah, you read that correctly. The museum is missing one final member: a human specimen.
The film finds its heart in the competition between two men who both want to the the first to donate their member to the museum, and in so doing be enshrined for years to come. The concept is out there, but the film is sensitive and often hilarious. See a few new photos of the participants below. Read More »
In 2012 Fantastic Fest played a very entertaining documentary called The Final Member. The setting is the world’s only penis museum, located in Iceland. The museum is particularly well-endowed, as its creator, Sigurður “Siggi” Hjartarson, has collected nearly every possible example of the male organ. But there’s one missing, one “final member.” The museum needs a human penis.
The film traces the creation of the museum, and the surprising competition between multiple would-be donors to have their members enshrined in the place. This could almost be a horror film, but instead turns out to be a wry, surprising comedy. Check out a very funny trailer below. Read More »
