About

A humorous conceptual documentary about the real life misadventures of 1970's Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader. The short is part PBS send-up, part Technicolor Biopic (with stolen bits of films from Holywood films such as Lust for Life and Sound of Music, among many others). The project was featured on NPR's THIS AMERICAN LIFE Voiceovers by Ira Glass, Lizzy Yoder of FischerSpooner, Ford Wright, Jim Strahs, Judy Elkan and Kevin Hurley.
