A Day With Timmy Page

USA, 1967 (MIFF 1970, Programme 8)

Director: David Hoffman

An 11-year-old film maker is seen at work with his associates, explaining his techniques and ideas- casting, influences, and so on. We are treated to short excerpts from the 20 ten-minute film he has completed in ten months, and to some very amusing insights into his self-assertive personality and the serious approach he takes.
