Gap-Toothed Women

Directed by Les Blank
1987, 31min

 

Blank pays tribute to the spirit and creativity of women with wide-set incisors—including gap-toothed icons like Lauren Hutton and Sandra Day O’Connor—in this spirited ode to non-traditional beauty. 

"As we witness the parade of women, and gaps, a peculiar process takes place. At first, we see only the gaps. Toward the end, we see only the women." Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

 
In Heaven There is No Beer?

Directed by Les Blank
1984, 50min

 

Polka power! Blank’s infectious valentine to the Bohemian dance and its devotees in Polish America goes from a beachside “polkabration” in Connecticut to a Catholic polka mass in Wisconsin and beyond.
