4/15/09: Trent Harris and his "Delightful Water Universe"

Filmmaker Trent Harris

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Utah filmmaker Trent Harris has created another of what he calls his "screwball comedies." Films like "Plan 10 from Outer Space" have earned him a cult following - and the new "Delightful Water Universe" follows in the same vein. Harris says they provide him some balance, because he also makes documentaries. His work has taken him from the diamond mines of Sierra Leone to the dumps of Cambodia, where children scavenge to eke out a living. Harris joins Doug to talk about his career and the universe as he sees it.

  • This Friday, April 17, Ken Sanders Rare Books will host a DVD release party for "Delightful Water Universe" and an exhibit of Trent Harris' paintings and photographs. The event is free and part of the Salt Lake City Gallery Stroll. For more information, click here or call the store at 801-521-3819.
