The Harvard Seal Documentary Film Club: Thought-provoking films and lively conversations shared over drinks with a group of curious, passionate and engaged doc lovers.

Jack Rebney, a.k.a. The Winnebago Man, went viral as "The Angriest Man in the World". His hilarious, profanity-strewn, on-the-job meltdown was passed around on VHS tapes until it exploded, decades later, into an Internet phenomenon seen by millions. When a young filmmaker sets out to find Rebney, he finds him living alone on a mountaintop, as sharp-tongued as ever, but more intelligent and loveable than anyone could have imagined.
