Les-Blank

Part of BAMcinématek series BAMcinemaFest 2014

In over 40 documentaries, legendary ethnographer of off-beat and unknown Americana Les Blank 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. Yum, Yum, Yum! will be followed by a Les Blank retrospective at BAMcinématek later this year. 103min.

The event will feature food vendors curated by Smorgasburg starting at 7pm and live music beginning at 8pm. Films screen at sundown.
