The Harlan Ellison documentary Dreams With Sharp Teeth will be part of the SXSW Film Festival in March later this year, and as you can tell from this trailer, it features Harlan Ellison at his most colorful. The documentary began filming in 1981, also features Battlestar Galactica head honcho Ronald D. Moore, author Neil Gaiman, and Robin Williams along with plenty of choice quotes and vintage photos of Ellison himself.

Ellison wrote the classic Star Trek episode "The City on the Edge of Forever" along with many other classic works of speculative fiction. He was also an early booster of Doctor Who in the United States, and wrote a classic introduction to the 1970s Who novels when they came stateside.

Dreams with Sharp Teeth screened in May of last year in Los Angeles, although apparently that print was a "work in progress" and they'll be showing the full version in Austin at SXSW. We'll be there — will you?
