Shut Up Little Man! An Audio Misadventure

In 1987, Eddie Lee Sausage and Mitch Deprey recorded the nightly squabbles of their over-the-top neighbors, homophobic Raymond Huffman and proudly gay Peter Haskett, and the chronicle of the pair’s bizarre existence soon took on a life of its own. This darkly funny documentary checks in with former punks Eddie and Mitch, who detail their late-’80s Lower Haight surroundings, and surveys the tapes’ influence on an array of underground artists.

Sam Klemke’s Time Machine

In 1977, 17-year-old American Sam Klemke, fascinated by film’s ability to capture time, decided to record and narrate his life. In the same year, NASA launched the Voyager spacecraft into the outer reaches of space with Golden Records of what was modestly referred to as the complete history of humanity’s accomplishments in music, art, and science. As that highlight reel of mankind hurtled through space, Klemke continued filming his life in decidedly lowlight “TMI” glory. [Synopsis courtesy of Sundance Film Festival]
