GRANDPA’S STILL IN THE TUFF SHED
A story of love, death, ice and high hopes

“There‚Äôs been a lot of Grandpa sightings in Nederland this year,” reports Robin Beeck, who with the help of Michael Moore, has spent the last five years filming a feature-length 60-minute documentary on Bredo Morstoel, a Norwegian who was frozen solid by his grandson in a bizarre cryonics experiment in 1983. Since then, the world-famous....well...stiff has been lying under 800 pounds of dry ice in a TUFF SHED behind his grandsons‚Äô castle-like house in the 9000-ft Colorado ski town of Nederland. The grandson, Trygve Bauge, has long since been deported back to Norway, but Grandpa Bredo has remained, unwittingly becoming a worldwide symbol of the legal rights of the temporarily dead....

The film follows the puzzled townsfolk as they progress from fear and anger at the body’s discovery, to a gradual grudging acceptance, and finally, a world-renowned celebration in Grandpa’s honor: Frozen Dead Guy Days.
