Phil Chambliss: The Arkansas Auteur
Phil Chambliss in person!
What if Fellini had lived in a trailer in rural Arkansas? His films might look something like the work of Phil Chambliss. With the help of friends and his co-workers at the gravel pit, this self-taught ‘folk art filmmaker’ has created, for over 25 years, an alternate reality where deer hunting is the sport of choice and phones only work when under water. These totally unique and often hilarious films depict life in the Arkansas outback and convey a strong sense of place and authentic regional flavor. The programs features Shadow of the Hatchet Man, about a rampaging killer and an inept sheriff, complete with spaghetti western motifs and lesbian overtones; and surprise shorts.
