The official synopsis:
Paris has the Louvre, London has the Tate Modern, and New York the Metropolitan Museum. But Husavik, Iceland – a remote 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 mammalian members collected over 40 years, 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. But Siggi’s world changes dramatically when he receives generous offers from an elderly Icelandic Casanova looking to bequeath his organ upon his death and an eccentric American who’s willing to be a living donor. However, as the competition for eternal penile preservation heats up between the two men, Siggi discovers that this process is more complicated than it initially appeared.
Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math’s debut feature has been praised by critics and acknowledged by audiences for its sincere and sublimely comic portrait of obsession. “The Final Member ultimately reflects on how we choose to live our life, and even more, how we want it to be remembered,” Kevin Jagerman says in his review for The Playlist. The doc follows Siggi on his dogged, often emotional quest to complete his exhibition in a peculiar yet startlingly relatable story of self-fulfillment and the value of personal legacies (both big and small).
