The Pez Outlaw

Donald and Donna Baumgartner

Small-town eccentricity meets global subterfuge in this mad-but-true documentary. Steve Glew's friendly Midwestern veneer hides a stunning truth - the man known as THE PEZ OUTLAW is in fact an international smuggler. Shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Steve flew to Europe to smuggle limited edition Pez dispensers into the US illegally. He practically became rich overnight, but was also thrust into the cuthroat world of Pez dispenser collecting, controlled by the all-powerful man known as The Pezident.

NOTE: Purchase of Opening Night ticket (4/21) includes access to our Opening Night Party at the Oriental Theatre following our screening!
