We discussed Sid Laverents four years ago
, but since then, his masterwork, Multiple SIDosis
, has appeared on YouTube. I had the pleasure of attending a screening of four of Mr. Laverents' short films at last weekend's fantastic Wisconsin Film Festival
, and thought this film was worth sharing.
There's a lot of context for Mr. Laverents' career in the previous Metafilter post, if you're curious. A former vaudeville performer who specialized in the one-man band, he's turning 100 this year, and still making VHS and DVD transfers of his films himself
(although his email address seems to be defunct). An autobiography, The First 90 Years are the Hardest
, is also available. Enjoy!
