Selling the Flamingo looks at memory and sentiment through the liquidation of one of Winnipeg’s premiere landmarks, the Flamingo Motel. Featured in the video is the most laid-back, fast-talking auctioneer ever. The reality that nothing is without a dollar value is evident throughout the tape, from beds with just a little lovin’ to a motel that has become the beacon of the Pembina Strip.
