P.O.V. | Following Sean | Preview | PBS

Duration: 02:03

Thirty years after making a celebrated student short about a four-year-old child of free spirits living in San Francisco's Haight Ashbury district at the height of the 1960s, Ralph Arlyck attempts the kind of revelation only documentary film can provide.

In "Following Sean," airing on PBS's P.O.V. series on July 31, 2007, he goes in search of the impish, barefoot kid who delighted or horrified audiences, reflecting the hopes and fears of a turbulent, utopian era. In discovering what has become of Sean, Arlyck finds a complex reality — and experiences pure cinematic surprise. As the filmmaker comes to grips with his own midlife conflicts, "Following Sean" may reveal as much about Arlyck and his generation as it does his subject.
