A Poem Is a Naked Person

Les Blank
USA 1974, 2015
90 min

A POEM IS A NAKED PERSON was long considered a near-mythical entity, mainly because so few people had actually seen it. The documentary about singer-songwriter Leon Russell – filmed during a peak period (1972–1974) in the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer’s career – never received an official theatrical release. Yet, some of the lucky folks who managed to see the film claimed that it was absolutely amazing. And we were forced to take their word on it – at least until now. A POEM IS A NAKED PERSON has finally been freed from film purgatory. (Jim Harrington)

In the presence of Harrod Blank (Producer).
