Samuel Beckett gave us Waiting for Godot, one of the great plays of the 20th century. Today, he would have turned 104 years old. He died back in 1989, and just two years before that, the publicity-shy playwright was captured in some rare footage that appeared in an American documentary called “Waiting for Beckett.” The images and voices can be a little difficult to make out, but it’s worth giving this clip a little bit of time to unfold. Meanwhile, you can find more film clips involving Beckett (as writer and director) on UBUWeb, the avant-garde media site we featured here last month.
Thanks Mike for sending this one our way.
