New Larry Levis Film

Film Poster

Toward the end of 2015, I posted a Saturday Short column about a forthcoming film about the poet Larry Levis, who was just 49 when he died in 1996. Now, a trailer for the documentary, A Late Style of Fire | Larry Levis, American Poet (13 Ways Productions, 2016), which is produced and directed by Michele Poulous, is available. 

For additional information about Levis and the film, which will have its world premiere this October in California, see Saturday Short.

I also recommend reading The Selected Levis, Revised Edition (University of Pittsburgh Press, 2003) and The Darkening Trapeze: Last Poems (Graywolf Press, 2016). I have copies of both and find myself returning to them often. Levis was a remarkable poet.

Watch the trailer:
