SCREENING + CONVERSATION
Llyn Foulkes: One Man Band (2013)
Directed by Tamar Halpern and Chris Quilty | 88 minutes
Painter and musician Llyn Foulkes and writer/director Tamar Halpern come together for a screening and conversation regarding Llyn Foulkes: One Man Band. Halpern and Chris Quilty’s feature documentary chronicles Los Angeles–based Foulkes’s struggles and successes, from ages 70 to 77, as he creates, destroys, and recreates large-scale artworks, including the piece that collapsed his marriage. With commentary from Dennis Hopper and George Herms, the film reveals how Foulkes’s obsessive vision and work ethic preserved his integrity at all costs, yet ultimately resulted in late-career art world recognition.
Tamar Halpern’s recent projects include an adaptation of Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life, based on the book by The New York Times best-selling young adult author Wendy Mass. Previous work includes the feature Shelf Life, called a “whip smart film that taps into a fresh source for American comedy” by Variety. Halpern’s fiction is published in Joyland Magazineand RETRO Magazine. She is a recipient of the Paramount Screenwriting Fellowship, Jack Oakie Comedy Screenplay Award, and Best of the Net Award.
