3 = 1: The Films Of Jan Sharp
This is a manufactured on demand disc that was created using a DVD-R disc. It should play in all standard DVD players.
Jan Sharp's circle of friends includes some of the most interesting, creative, and unique people on earth. 3=1 includes a trio of films on three completely different people who open up for Sharp's camera precisely because she knows them.
In Rick, Michele and Scarlett, Sharp focuses on three unlikely friends, including the fashion world's newest sensation, Rick Owens, recently hailed as the "edge of future fashion." Long-time friends with Sharp, Rick Owens prepares for a Paris showing in this charming home movie. His L.A. studio is across the street from Michele Remy's cafe, where the city's movers and shakers come for a quiet evening out on the town. Michele, a Renaissance woman, operates the cafe with daughter Scarlett.
Beard: Pecking Order was shot at the invitation of the film's subject, Peter Beard, who asked Sharp to record his last professional assignment in his beloved Africa. The filmmaker and her subject are lifelong friends, and the film captures the intimacy and pleasure of what it's like to be part of their inner circle.
Shot on location in East Timor, Chasing The President follows President Jose Ramos Horta on a peace-building mission into the remote border districts of Asia's newest nation. Sharp joins a presidential convoy of 15 four-wheel-drive vehicles as it winds its way through isolated mountain villages to Balibo and beyond.
