R.I.P. Sid Laverents, 100 Year Old Amateur Filmmaker
A few days ago we lost Sid Laverents, the 100 year old home movie genius who's film "Multiple SIDosis" was deemed significant enough to be preserved by the Library of Congress. I wrote about the short film, and my admiration for the man a while back. If you missed it, it's worth reading about the amazing home made film, and the unique personality that created it.
The little 9 minute movie manages to be charming, beguiling, and quite sophisticated all at the same time. Sid kept on producing films well into his 90's, and seemed to enjoy every minute of notoriety that his decades of home-brewed projects brought him. Rest in peace, clever man...
