Seems that Washington DC is just awakening to the fact that the great documentary filmmaker is in the nation’s capital this week. Les Blank: Living in Film on Thursday night was followed by a screening of his film Sworn to the Drum at the Smithsonian today. Tonight’s rarely seen documentary by Les Blank - on a major rock star of the 70s, described by the Washington Post “The best film ever made on rock.” (1974/90 mins./USA) sold out quickly following yesterday’s Washington Post article. The DC Independent Film Festival has responded by adding an extra screening of the film at noon, Saturday March 3rd. Same venue. Tickets at the festival website or directly at brownpapertickets.com.
