The Final Member

Synopsis: Thirty miles from the Arctic Circle, in the northern Icelandic town of Husavik, stands the Icelandic Phallological Museum - the world's only Penis museum. Over 40 years, the founder and curator has collected every specimen from every mammal except for one elusive penis needed to complete his collection: The Human Specimen. The film follows the curator's incredible, sublimely comic, often shocking quest to complete his eccentric collection, and the two intrepid men who have raised their hands to be the first human donor.

Hello!

- Excellent.

- Here you go, theyre great.

Thanks.

Well, this is a bladdernose seal.

And here's the smallest of the

whales, the common porpoise,

with both testicles.

And this is a penis

from a harbour seal.

A beautiful specimen

with the testicles.

These are absolutely fantastic.

Absolutely fabulous.

This started as a joke

with a bull's penis in 1974.

I was 33 years old

and it was in the town

of Akranes in the south

where I was the headmaster

of a secondary school.

One of my teachers gave it to me

at a party just as a joke.

That was the first.

This museum presents phalluses

or penises from the animal kingdom.

With all the artistic pieces around

as well.

Here it is, the bull's penis

that my teacher gave me.

The one that gave me the idea

to start collecting.

So this was what started everything.

This is the biggest specimen

I've got so far.

It's from a sperm whale,

but this is just one third

of the length of the organ.

This is the part that leaks out

when the animal dies.

This is a penis bone

from a cave bear,

a species that got extinct

10, 15 thousand years ago.

So this is, this is very rare

and very precious to me.

I've been collecting

for almost 40 years now.

I'm almost 70.

And I've got foxes, minks,

house mouse, field mouse,

rats, brown rats, black rats,

pigs, horses, rams, bulls, reindeer,

polar bear, seals, walruses,

harbour seal, grey seal,

sperm whale,

humpback, minke whale,

killer whale, dolphins.

I've got them all.

I've got specimens from

all mammalian species except one.

A proper human.

Without the proper human,

the collection is not complete.

My dad has been collecting penises

as long as I remember.

I think for me it was

quite, you know, normal.

Just part of, you know,

the family life

to bring home

a new specimen for the museum.

Or for the collection,

it wasn't a museum then.

It was a private collection at home.

Just for display,

for guests and so on.

It was shocking for people

to come into his home.

Hed filled up his whole house with

all types of penises in formaldehyde.

He wasnt afraid

of what other people thought.

More and more penises

kept coming into the house.

Then it got out of control, so we told him

he had to open a museum.

And I opened it

with an opening ceremony, in style.

On the 23rd of August, '97.

That's my birthday as well.

BIRTHDAY SONG IN ICELANDIC

Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!

We have anniversaries on

the same day, me and the museum.

It was great.

There was more space at home.

So I was happy.

We started when I was 17

and she was 18.

We've been together 52 years now.

I would never have been able to do

the museum without her support.

Quite a few people thought,

of course,

that I was a pervert

or something like that

to start with...

start collecting penises.

Most people, some people may have

thought it absolutely nonsensical.

Or, or idiotic.

But when people realised

there's nothing pornographic there,

they just...

Well, they may start thinking,

why is he doing it?

What... what is his concept

of presenting this to us?

The museum developed

almost naturally

but echoes many of

the approaches to the world

that you see within his teaching.

Especially the question of something

that mustn't be talked about.

And there's...

Anything that Siggi comes across

that mustn't be talked about,

for him it must be talked about

straight away, let's discuss this.

Did you know that?

Ah, you knew that. Great.

This is very, very important for me

to inform people or educate people.

I think this serves or helps
