Meeting Harry Smith by Drew Christie

christie.jpg

A short anecdotal film by artist and animator Drew Christie in which musicologist John Cohen relates his first encounter with mercurial polymath Harry Smith, a man small in stature but large in interests and influence. Christie is something of a polymath himself since he also provides the banjo soundtrack. There’s more art and animation at his blog, while Ubuweb (of course) has a small selection of Smith’s own films. Thanks to Caspar for the tip.

    I spent a LOT of time with Harry, and this captures him BEST of anything I’ve seen or heard. THANKS!
