About the film: Butch Anthony is a lot like his art: eccentric, playful, authentic, charming, provocative, embellished, and layered. But, as a self-taught artist from a one-horse town in rural Alabama, he can’t be easily categorized any more than his art can. In this layered portrait, we meet the man behind the drive-thru museum, trophy-covered Cadillac, and pontoon pirate ship known as Llatikcuf (read it backwards). Get to know the Butch behind the Butch and see him for what he truly is: an original.
