Django Unchained helps Icelander receive double arm transplant
Quentin Tarantino and his cast have offered up a signed clapperboard for auction, in order to help Gudmunder Felix undergo a double arm donor transplant.
In what is probably the most heartwarming story of this year’s awards season, Quentin Tarantino and the cast of Django Unchained have offered support to Icelander Gudmundur Felix in his fundraising to pay for a double donor arm transplant.
Felix will move to Lyon, France in March to await a double donor arm transplant (the first of its kind) and as soon as Tarantino and the cast heard of Felix’s fundraising attempts, they signed a clapperboard from the film to offer up for auction.
A documentary crew are following Felix on his journey. New Hands is set for release in 2014 and will be produced by Ljosop Iceland and directed by Markell, with worldwide distribution handled by Spier Films.
The clapperboard is now up for auction here, and the auction closes on Jan 26.
