Trent Harris’s Beaver Trilogy Trent Harris’s Beaver Trilogy is a series of three pieces about the same subject, a young man from a small town called Beaver who is obsessed with Olivia Newton John. The first piece is a documentary (1979). The second piece is a dramatic work based on the documentary starring Sean Penn (1980). The third piece is yet another dramatic work, this time starring Crispin Glover (1985). Los Angeles Critics Association awarded Beaver Trilogy BEST INDEPENDENT/EXPERIMENTAL FILM OF 2001 What the critics are saying… “A rivetingly strange, multilayered inquiry into, celebrity, obsession and serendipity.” – New York Times – A.O. Scott “By far the most exciting and heart-breaking piece of cinema this critic has seen in years.” – IndieWIRE – Aaron Krach “Filmmaker Trent Harris is a genuine maverick who has poisted his first piece of genius.” – The Time London – James Christopher “Both guileless found art object and beautifully crafted pop fantasia… Beaver Trilogy is destined to go down as the coolest footnote to any number of careers.” – Filmmaker Magazine “Of all the films that have ever been or will be, nothing compares to Beaver Trilogy.” – Sundance Film Festival “A stunning and complex exercise, an elaborate karaoke-upon-karaoke that snaps right into place with contemporary obsessions.” – New York Press – Ed Halter “I would strongly recommend your taking a look at Trent Harris’s Beaver Trilogy, a work that’s as strange and rare as a fire-dwelling salamander.” – The Nation Magazine – Stuart Klawens “Beaver Trilogy is so perfect, so odd, and so affecting that you will feel you’re in the presence of a minor miracle or some strange form of beatitude.” – New York Video Festival – Lincoln Center” – Trent Harris’s website When I sent Trent Harris an email asking his permission to screen Beaver Trilogy as part of the SATURDAY programme at Cubitt he wrote me back immediately: “HI POLLY… I WOULD BE HONOURED IF YOU WOULD SCREEN BEAVER TRILOGY. PLEASE DO IT AND HAVE A HELL OF A GOOD TIME… ALL THE BEST AND GOOD LUCK… TRENT’.” Booking for this event has now closed.
