Yum, Yum, Yum! 3 Movies by Les Blank
Ethnographer of offbeat and unknown Americana, documentarian Les Blank passed away last April at age 77. In over 40 docu-essays he explored food, music, American micro-cultures, and a wide range of other subjects.
BAMcinemaFest pays tribute to his legacy with this outdoor screening featuring Garlic Is as Good as Ten Mothers (1980), Blank’s delightful ode to everyone’s favorite stinking rose; The Blues Accordin’ to Lightnin’ Hopkins (1970), a portrait of the legendary Texas bluesman; and Werner Herzog Eats His Shoe (1980), which depicts the very act its title describes.
The event will also feature food vendors curated by Smorgasburg starting at 7pm and live music beginning at 8pm.
