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.

Arrive early for a great seat!  Bring your knitting or crochet and get ready for a great time.  NOTE: Chairs are NOT allowed.  Bring a blanket to sit on.

Brooklyn Bridge Park is accessible by several subway lines (A/C, 2/3, 4/5, F, R) and bus routes (B25, B63).  Visitor Information and Travel Information

    No chairs is a deal breaker for me. I get a backache sitting on the ground and need a crane to get me up. Switching to whole Foods.
