What kind of penis is The Final Member about? Wolf penis, mouse penis, horse penis, reindeer penis, and whale penis; but mostly its about human penis. Two penises in particular attached to two men locked in competition to get their respective members (understand the title now?) displayed in an Icelandic penis museum. And guess what? The Final Member isn’t a work of fiction; it’s a documentary.
Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math’s genitalia-centered film is being distributed by Drafthouse Films, with a simultaneous theatrical run – limited, of course – and Video On Demand release planned for April 18th.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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. 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. However, as the competition for eternal penile preservation heats up between the two men, Siggi soon discovers that this process is more complicated than it initially appeared.
Unbelievable? Reality often is.
