Robert Nelson, (1930–2012)

Historic Film, Short Film

"A 'film wake'. Though celebratory in mood, it has a mournful subtext... death and dying. We dedicated it to Dr. Sam West, departed friend and patron of the arts, trusting that his ghost would approve our hi-jinx and seeming irreverence." –Robert Nelson
