Each year, RadioWest sits down for in-depth conversations with filmmakers and producers during the Sundance Film Festival. Just like the festival, the RadioWest team has eclectic taste. We hope you enjoy the diversity of topics as much as we do.

Sundance 2015: Finders Keepers

Shannon Whisnant has a nose for a bargain. But when he bought a used grill at a North Carolina auction, the severed human leg he found inside was not part of the deal. The leg belonged to John Wood, and his connection to it was as emotional as it was personal. Their battle over possession of the leg is profiled in a hysterical and insightful documentary film called Finders Keepers. Directors Bryan Carberry and Clay Tweel join us Friday as we warp up our coverage of the Sundance Film Festival.

Bryan Carberry and Clay Tweel directed the documentary film Finders Keepers. It's screening in the 2015 Sundance Film Festival U.S. Documentary Competition section. Screening times are:

Friday, 1/30 at 6:00 p.m., Salt Lake City Public Library

Saturday, 1/31 at 9:00 a.m., Yarrow Hotel Theatre (Park City)
