Ben Steinbauer

Winnebago Man (2009) by Ben Steinbauer seeks to solve a mystery: who is the ranting Winnebago salesman from an often-duplicated cult videotape? When the filmmaker stalks, confronts, and interviews his subject, Jack Rebney (above), two versions of the "what happened to" story emerge. The film's detailed and revealing observation of Rebney allows the audience to come to its own conclusions about a true eccentric.
