Sometimes I Run (1973)

1973 portrait of Stanley Maupin who cleans sidewalks at night for the Dallas Department of Sanitation. A film by Blaine Dunlap with music by Ken Watson.

This stream is from a 1980s film chain transfer of the 16mm film. Filmmaker Blaine Dunlap lost all his original film elements in New Orleans in Katrina, and thought that all that remained of his film was this transfer. However, he found two 16mm prints in the collection of the South Carolina Arts Commission, and hopes to do a film restoration from these prints.
