Sean, a four year old child living with his parents in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco in 1969 was the star of a short film about his life. He spoke openly his free-spirited parents, his crash pad home, watching cops bust head, and smoking pot. Ralph Arlyck made the film while a student at San Francisco State University.

Thirty years later he located Sean and his family, and created the film Following Sean. Ralph Arlyck, our guest on this edition of Radio Curious has produced and directed more than a dozen prizewinning films. Following Sean is a film as much about Ralph Arlyck’s life as it is about Sean’s. It will be shown at the Mendocino Film Festival, held in Mendocino, California, the first weekend of June, 2012, where Arlyck will receive the Albert Maysles Award for Excellence in Documentary Film Filmmaking.

Ralph Arlyck and I visited by phone from his home in Poughkeepsie, New York, on May 14, 2012, and began when I asked him about a eureka or ah-ha moment that has influenced his life. His answer explains the history of narration in cinema verite a style of documentary filmmaking, and it’s non-use in Following Sean.

The film Ralph Arlyck recommends is “Patience (After Sebald,)” a British Film by Grant Gee.
