Sidewalk takes over The Bottletree Tuesday night

Tomorrow night those that head out to The Bottletree will not only get a chance to help out Birmingham’s annual film festival – Sidewalk – but they’ll get to enjoy a pre-release screening of an incredible independent film before it’s released nationwide beginning July 9th.

Filmmaker Ben Steinbauer‘s documentary Winnebago Man is about Jack Rebney,  a.k.a. “the angriest man in the world.” Apparently he’s become famous due to some “hilariously foul-mouthed outtakes from an RV sales video.”

It’s even more impressive when you realize that his notoriety happened long before the days of YouTube, though it’s definitely helped the clips become even more recognizable.

The film chronicles Steinbauer’s journey to find and meet Rebney, who (according to the email reminder) “turns out to be more savvy, deep, weird, and cool than anyone could have imagined.”

Tickets will be $5 for members of Sidewalk and $8 for non-members. Bottletree’s offering $1 PBR drafts all night too so you’ve really got no good excuse not to go, do you?
