MSPIFF: "Mr Positive"

Posted at 11:23 AM on April 20, 2008 by Euan Kerr

Some of Minnesota's documentarians will strut their stuff tonight at the Minnesota short doc screening.

One of them "Mr Positive" introduces us to a man many St Paulites have seen, at least in the distance. Carl Bentson rides a three wheeler bike festooned with lights and reflectors all over the east metro.

While a developmental disability limits Benston's speech, he has a photographic memory and an indefatigable work ethic. Local film maker Mike Hazard dropped in on Carl over the years and tells his story through Bentson's own words and those of his many friends.

"Mr Positive" is on the program with Jesse Roesler and Jen Larson's "Finding Flight," 9-year old Diego Luke's "Diego's trip to Guatemala" Paul Benhardt's "Bronze" and Matt Ehling's "Coming Home."
