The Best of Szeged, Hungary 2009 International Super 8 Film Festival

The Best Film:
Dr. Doowop / Director Michiel Brongers / 2008 / The Netherlands / 15 min. / Documentary
‘There's nothing that makes you feel so alive as getting a death threat.’ What do cigarettes and erotic literature have to do with close harmony music? They come together in The Dr. Doowop Show, the only doowop radio show in Europe. This documentary shows the man behind the voice in his habitat in Amsterdam. William Levy (1939, Brooklyn, New York), author, publisher and pioneer of independent erotic media, comments on his life with its trials and tribulations. A film about radical media, loneliness and eternal love.
