Les Blank works in 16mm film and has show for decades that a comparative lack of width in film stock, and breadth of public acquaintance with the subject matter at hand, are not antithetical to the making of films profound, moving, deeply joyous and lasting.
Les Blank is a prize-winning independent filmmaker, best known for a series of poetic films that led Time Magazine critic Jay Cocks to write, "I can't believe that anyone interested in movies or America...could watch Blank's work without feeling they'd been granted a casual, soft-spoken revelation." John Rockwell, writing in The New York Times, adds, "Blank is a documentarian of folk cultures who transforms anthropology into art." And Vincent Canby, also in The Times, declared that Blank "is a master of movies about the American idiom...one of our most original filmmakers."
