A Late Style of Fire: A Feature Documentary Film on Larry Levis
Oct 17, 2017, 7:00 pm
Join Guest Writers Series and The Utah Film Center for a special screening of A Late Style of Fire: Larry Levis, American Poet. This innovative documentary explores Levis’ childhood working alongside Mexican-American field hands, his three marriages, and friendships with America’s greatest poets, and his own words. Director Michele Poulos will be present for a discussion after the screening.
The brilliant writing and troubled 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 and film excerpts by award-winning Spanish filmmaker Lois Patiño, this innovative documentary explores his childhood working alongside Mexican-American field hands, three marriages, friendships with America’s greatest poets, and his own words for answers.
Featured poets include US Poet Laureate Philip Levine, US Poet Laureate Charles Wright, Carolyn Forché, David St. John, Carol Muske-Dukes, Norman Dubie, Colleen McElroy, Gerald Stern, Stanley Plumly, Kathleen Graber, and more.
Michele Poulos's first feature-length documentary film, A Late Style of Fire: Larry Levis, American Poet, had its world premiere at the 2016 Mill Valley Film Festival. The film’s an official selection at six more festivals including the Palm Beach Int'l Film Festival and the Virginia Film Festival. She’s an award-winning poet, screenwriter, and filmmaker. She holds a BFA in filmmaking from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, an MFA degree in poetry from Arizona State University, and an MFA in fiction from Virginia Commonwealth University. Iris Press published her first full-length collection of poems, Black Laurel, in 2016.
This event is made possible with support from the Guest Writers Series at the University of Utah, the Utah Film Center, and Utah Humanities.
