A Poem Is a Naked Person 

When: Aug. 21-25, 7:30 p.m. 2015
Price: $4-$6
Once thought to be doomed forever to limbo, Les Blank's 1974 film A Poem Is a Naked Person was officially shown to the public in 2015. This documentary about musician Leon Russell covered two years of Russell's life, from 1972 to 1974, as Russell and his extended circle of friends wrote, played and recorded music on the banks of Oklahoma's Grand Lake. In addition to concert footage and interviews, the film includes multiple instances of Blank's beloved "scene-setting" shots, such as sunsets, different views of the lake and extended sequences of artist Jim Franklin painting a mural in an empty swimming pool. The Webster Film Series screens this highly anticipated documentary at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Tuesday (August 21 through 25) at Moore Auditorium on Webster University's campus (470 East Lockwood Avenue; 314-968-7487 or Tickets are $4 to $6.
