Ricky on Leacock
The work (on and off screen) of legendary filmmaker, Richard Leacock, protégé to Robert Flaherty (Nanook of the North, Louisiana Story) not only influenced generations of filmmakers during his long career but also changed, technically and aesthetically, "how" movies are made. Ricky on Leacock is a cinematic journey that Jane Weiner began as a young filmmaker during which, over 38 years, she filmed various encounters with his friends and contemporaries including D.A. Pennebaker, Robert Drew, Ed Pincus, Jonas Mekas, Duan Makavejev, and others. -- (C) IFC Center
