Post-film Q&A with director Michele Poulos.

The brilliant poetry and scandalous life of Californian Larry Levis came to an abrupt halt when he died at age 49. Is self-destruction required for a serious life of art? Featuring an original score by Iron and Wine, this innovative documentary explores his childhood working alongside migrant workers, three marriages, friendships with America’s greatest poets, and his own words for answers.

Official Selection: 2016 Mill Valley Film Festival

Presented in partnership with

Utah Humanities Book Festival will also be hosting a lunchtime colloquium with director Michele Poulos the day after the screening on Wed, October 18th at the Finch Lane Gallery in Salt Lake City. Click here for complete event details.
