films I watched in 2012, in chronological order
not on mubi
-Running Around Like a Chicken With Its Head Cut Off (Les Blank with Gail Blank, Pieter Van Deusen, U.S., 1960). Blank’s first film is an homage to Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal. (4 mins, B&W, 16mm, From Flower Films).
-Dry Wood (Les Blank with Maureen Gosling, U.S., 1973). An intimate portrait of the slow rhythms of Creole life in rural southwest Louisiana, where the roots of family, food, and celebrations run deep, Dry Wood is set to the soundtrack of music by “Bois Sec” Ardoin. (37 mins, Color, 16mm, From Flower Films)
