Life Is A Very Strange Thing
Les spent a bit of time with me in the lead up to and during the making of LIAVST. He had bought a new camera and wanted to see how the images scrubbed up and brought me some test shots for evaluation, to see what grading would achieve so that he could keep that in mind as he was shooting. Les' efforts to get the best out of the camera are immortalised in this very strange and wonderful production.
An anonymous review from the Facebook page @documentaryethics:
... this film is stunning! An essay film, an ethnography, a biography - it draws you in with humour and lyricism and great visual beauty; it is so well edited, with grace and a rhythm that takes you in for a gentle, yet witty and wide journey about life, family, memory, history and politics and film!
