VERNON, FLORIDA (1981) [Feature]

USA (MIFF 1982 )
Director: Errol Morris

Vernon, Florida is a film about some of the ordinary (which is to say extraordinary) people of a small town in Washington County, Florida. There is a man obsessed with shooting wild turkeys who takes us through the ritual of hunting "gobblers", proudly displaying turkey feet trophies. There is another couple with a jar of sand from Los Alamos, New Mexico. which they insist is constantly growing. And there is another man with very odd pets indeed.
