Vincent P. Falk is known around Chicago for his bright, colored suits and the whirly, spinny dance moves that he performs for unexpecting passersby. He’s gained a little more notoriety lately for Jennifer Burns’s documentary Vincent: A Life in Color, a portrait of the heretofore mysterious man. In a sentence, Jennifer describes his story: “Legally blind and abandoned at birth, Vincent uses his unique sense of style to find the love and attention he so deeply desires.”
You can learn more about the guy with the “stupefying suits” in Roger Ebert’s Chicago Sun-Times blog that came out soon after the movie premiered, or better yet, you can check out Vincent himself, along with the filmmaker and film in San Francisco this Thursday.
The movie is playing at the Haight’s Red Vic Movie House, and you can win two tickets by sending a disability-related question for our next Accessible Intercourse podcast to firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday at 6 PM. Easy! We’ll select a random winner from all the submissions we receive.
