Bizarre Trailer for the Documentary SPEARHUNTER
Here’s a trailer for a crazy looking documentary called Spearhunter, which introduces you to the weird and bizarre world of boar hunting with spears. I didn’t even know anything like this existed, but this doc follows a group of men in Alabama who hunt wild boar with spears. It seems to mostly center on one man who is the self-proclaimed greatest spear hunter ever, and he even created a museum dedicated to the art of spear hunting, and himself. The guy seems like quite the character, and he’s also a little frightening.
Deep in the wilds of rural Alabama, a spear-hunter proclaims himself the world’s greatest and erects a museum dedicated to his own obsession. In this atmospheric and darkly funny documentary, an offbeat cast of lovers, acolytes, and critics of the megalomaniacal spear-hunter remember his distinctive tactics both for killing and for leaving a legacy.
The film is set to premiere at SXSW.
