Congrats to Joyland contributor Tamar Halpern on finishing her latest feature film (co-directed with  Christopher Quilty). It’s a very intriguing looking documentary on artist Llyn Foulkes:

This feature documentary follows the painter and musician Llyn Foulkes from age 70 to 77 as he struggles to be acknowledged. During the seven years chronicled in the film, Foulkes creates, destroys and recreates a pair of large-scale, three-dimensional paintings, one that costs him his marriage, all while trying to keep a toe hold in the art market. With commentary from Dennis Hopper and George Herms, it’s revealed how Foulkes has avoided “selling his soul”, setting the tone for the next fifty years of his uncompromising, up-and-down career.
