Sid Laverents. He was very busy!

Sid Laverents has been making witty and humorous films since 1966. In 2000, Multiple Sidosity was the first, amateur-made film selected to be placed in The Library of Congress's National Film Registry. His latest, The Sid Saga, is also his autobiography and at the age of 95 remains busy, self-distributing his work. (via Low Culture)

No problem. I was surprised that no one had posted it before.

I saw him on Egg. You have to see Multiple Sidosis to appreciate it! As the NYT article mentions, I do wonder what Mr. Lavernts would say about the "Hey Ya!" video.

Thanks for this, biscuit man. Definitely worth a post. It's hard to imagine even getting out of bed at age 95, let alone still being so fascinated wtih your work.
