Summary
Beginning with The Blues Accordin' to Lightnin' Hopkins in 1969, Les Blank has become known for his films about indigenous southern music and various other topics. He has received numerous major awards including the British Academy Award for 'Burden of Dreams,' about Werner Herzog and the making of 'Fitzcarraldo,' top prizes at the Melbourne Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival for 'In Heaven There is No Beer?,' and the Maya Deren Award for lifetime achievement as an independent filmmaker. Retrospectives of Blank's work have been held at New York's Museum of Modern Art, the National Film Theatre, London, and the Cinematheque Francaise. His filmmaking company, Flower Films, is based in El Cerrito, California. Les Blank, along with music writer Peter Guralnick, appeared on Screening Room in January 1973 to discuss his recent work and screen The Blues Accordin' to Lightnin' Hopkins, also footage from what later comprised Dry Wood and Hot Pepper
