On Video: Les Blank and Gabriel Dawe

Robert Boyd

Les Blank, RIP

Documentarian Les Blank died last Sunday.  Best known for Burden of Dreams, his documentary on Werner Herzog, he made numerous documentaries over the course of his career, including The Blues Accordin' to Lightnin' Hopkins (trailer above).
