Bay Area filmmaker Gina Leibrecht will present and discuss her final collaboration with the late great Les Blank. It documents a visit in 2000 that Blank and Leibrecht made to the 200-year-old farm in Normandy, France that Richard Leacock shared with Valerie Lalonde. Leacock was himself a great documentarian and cinematographer (celebrated as co-founder of the cinema verité movement), and the two living legends engaged in extended conversations about the history of non-fiction film. But an authentic Les Blank film has to include tantalizing food, and this film doesn’t disappoint, focusing on Leacock at the Sartilly farmers’ market and in the kitchen, as well as walking in the French countryside. Screened with a Les Blank short subject. Camera/Producers/Directors: Les Blank, Gina Leibrecht. (US 2014) Program approximately 90 min.
