For centuries, a unique breed of fishermen has been catching monster catfish with their bare hands in the rivers and lakes of Oklahoma. Today, the tradition of “noodling” still has Okie anglers hooked. This lively documentary by Bradley Beesley features interviews with hardcore handfishing veterans as well as rousing footage of real noodlers in action. Set against an original musical score by rock band The Flaming Lips, Okie Noodling offers an anecdotal and often hilarious look at a most unusual piece of Midwest American culture. OKIE NOODLING premiered to sold out crowds at the 2001 South by Southwest Film Festival, winning the AUDIENCE CHOICE AWARD and 1ST RUNNER-UP FOR BEST DOCUMENTARY. BEST DOCUMENTARY 2001 GREAT PLAINS FILM FESTIVAL. Bonus Features include: Filmmaker’s Commentary, Outtakes, Exclusive Songs from The Flaming Lips.
