Guest Writers Series Presents a Lunchtime Colloquium with Michele Poulos
Oct 18, 2017, 12:00 pm
Join Michele Poulos, director of A Late Style of Fire: Larry Levis, American Poet, for a lunchtime colloquium at the Finch Lane Gallery. Poulos will discuss her work on the film as well as her time spent researching Levis and his work.
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.
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, the Utah Film Center, and Utah Humanities.
