Fandor Feature: Winnebago Man

Posted on November 22, 2010 by Stephen Kastner | No Comments

Winnebago Man (2009), an American documentary feature film directed by Ben Steinbauer, is made available by Fandor, a curated service for exceptional independent films on demand.

Jack Rebney is the most famous man you’ve never heard of: an RV salesman whose hilarious, foul-mouthed outbursts circulated on VHS tapes in the 90s before turning into a full-blown Internet phenomenon in 2005, seen by 20 million people worldwide. Filmmaker Ben Steinbauer goes in search of Rebney and finds him living alone on a mountain top, unaware of his fame. Winnebago Man is a laugh-out-loud look at viral culture and an unexpectedly poignant tale of one man’s response to unintended celebrity.

Originally intended as an inside joke, the video spread across the globe earning the salesman the title of “The Angriest Man in the World“. The documentary explores the story of the clip’s origin and how, two decades later, it affects the man who never even knew it existed.

The film premiered at the South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas on March 14, 2009 and opened theatrically on July 9, 2010 at the Landmark Sunshine Cinema in New York, before expanding nationally.
