Beaver Trilogy: Part IV
Available on Tubi TV
Trent Harris is the director of offbeat comedies such as “Rubin & Ed” and “Plan 10 from Outer Space”, but he is best known for his highly acclaimed underground film “Beaver Trilogy”. In a parking lot in 1979, then-amateur filmmaker Trent Harris would meet an energetic young performer from Beaver, Utah; the chance meeting would change their lives forever. Over the subsequent decades the encounter would be retold in a series of fictional remakes that would culminate in the 2001 Sundance Film Festival entry “Beaver Trilogy” - but the film itself is only part of the story. “Beaver Trilogy Part IV” explores Trent Harris' eclectic career; and discovers the untold story of the original Beaver Kid. The overlapping narrative examines the ripple effect of both men's Hollywood dreams and the blurred lines between reality and remake.
