The one "thing" this Icelandic museum is missing is a human specimen. A trailer and poster have arrived for Drafthouse Films' doc "The Final Member," which chronicles the world's sole penis museum's "quest for one last endowment," i.e. a human phallus to add to their collection. Give it a gander, below.

The film, helmed by Jonah Bekhor and Zach Math, has its theatrical and VOD release on April 18, 2014. Here's the official synopsis:

Paris has the Louvre, London has the Tate Modern, and New York the Metropolitan Museum. But Husavik, Iceland-a diminutive 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 four decades worth of mammalian members, from a petite field mouse to the colossal sperm whale, and everything in between. Lamentably, Siggi's collection lacks the holy grail of phallic phantasmagoria: a human specimen. Siggi's world changes dramatically when he receives generous offers from an elderly Icelandic Casanova and an eccentric American. However, as the competition for eternal penile preservation heats up between the two men, Siggi soon discovers that this process is more complicated than it initially appeared.
