Clubfoot, or, Tales from the Back of an Ambulance

by Bret Fetzer and Stephen McCandless

directed by Elizabeth Hunter

Clubfoot is the vivid, surreal and wildly funny rendering of an Emergency Medical Technician's experience. Jump in the ambulance and be transported into a tripwire world of stroked-out delusionals, car crash victims, flesh-eating bacteria and more! It's an outrageously skewed view of humanity at its best and worst: fragile, resilient and accident-prone!
