Finders Keepers (w/ directors Bryan Carberry and Clay Tweel in person!) + Leg Meat BBQ!

Join us after the film for a Leg Meat BBQ on the patio!

This stranger-than-fiction doc takes as its premise the absurdity of headlines and evening news, plucking one of the most bizarre stories in present memory from the world of reality television and Judge Mathis, granting it a full cinematic form.

A self-described “entrepreneurial” hustler finds a mummified leg in the crusty old smoker he’s purchased from a storage unit auction. Subsequently, John Wood (amputee and the original owner of the leg) wants it back, and a grotesque and public battle over the severed limb ensues. Yes, this actually happened. Yes, it was on TV.

By turns hilarious and dark, Finders Keepers goes beyond the viral meme-ready aspects of its story––a foot chandelier, a Star Trek obsessed forensic veterinarian, $3 a pop mummified foot viewings––becoming more and more unbelievable each minute.

Dir. Bryan Carberry and Clay Tweel, 2015, DCP, 82 min.
