Shot in December 2006, this student documentary sought to discover where Mr. Butch (self-proclaimed king of Allston and king of men) sleeps -- and who he sleeps with. The project met neither goal, but instead found a community of local business owners that cared for a beloved resident of Harvard Ave who brought smiles to all.

NOTE (3/25/16): The director greatly regrets titling this "Sleeping with Mr Butch" while a student filmmaker. It should not be assumed that the women in this film have slept with Butch. The original intent of the documentary was to film where Butch rests his head at night and the alternately crude and kind things he yelled at people on the street during the day. We did not completely achieve that goal with this project. Per Butch's request, we respected his privacy and did not film the van where he slept. We should have also respected our interviewees and given a title that was not so suggestive. No one, not Butch, nor the interviewees, ever told us they slept with Butch, nor did we intend to suggest that. The people interviewed took care of him like he was family, and we hope through their words on film, that was apparent more than anything the title might have implied.

RIP Butch

My only regret is not going out and filming with him more. We were actually supposed to make a movie about him purchasing the Vespa that delivered him from this Earth.
