SLIFF - Paul Williams: Still Alive
Paul Williams: Still Alive

Stephen Kessler, U.S., 2011, 87 min.

Sunday, Nov. 11, 8:30 p.m., Webster U./Moore

Musician Paul Williams won Grammys and an Academy Award; wrote Barbra Streisand's "Evergreen," the Carpenter's "We've Only Just Begun," and Kermit the Frog's "The Rainbow Connection"; starred in Brian De Palma's "The Phantom of the Paradise"; and appeared on "The Tonight Show" 50 times. But for much of the past 30 years, Williams seemed not to exist. During the singer's '70s heyday, a young Steve Kessler was a devoted fan, and when the filmmaker discovers that Williams isn't dead, he decides to make a documentary and sets off in pursuit of his reluctant subject. A wistful musical journey that re-introduces a new generation to Williams' soulful classics, "Paul Williams: Still Alive" is the charmingly self-narrated story of Kessler's lifelong obsession with the former superstar.

Shown with Negativipeg (Matthew Rankin, Canada, 2012, 16 min.), which profiles Rory Lepine, who shot to fame in 1985 when he attacked Winnipeg rock legend Burton Cummings with a beer bottle in a 7-Eleven.
