Les Blank: Living With Film
A presentation of recent work interspersed with a taste of the classics in an exploration of a Well Spent Life.  A chance to learn about an extraordinary life in film by a legendary documentary filmmaker who has worked with Ry Cooder, Werner Herzog, Dennis Hopper, Huey Louis, Harry Belafonte and many more. With excerpts from works in progress (Butch Anthony, a self-taught artist from Alabama and a digital video on Richard "Ricky" Leacock, documentary film pioneer) and a look at  planned projects: An Untitled Video on Garrison Keillor; Carnival Is The Answer; Green Warriors: Desperate Measures in Desperate Times (on radical environmentalism, deep ecology and Earth First!, and a film on the large and dangerous fruit from Southeast Asia, known as the durian, so odoriferous, it is banned from hotels and public transportation in Singapore. Containing more protein than any other fruit or vegetable, it is also believed to be an aphrodisiac. Yum! Yum! Yum!

This program will be  film and  conversation.
