This book tells the stories of film directors who began outside the system – often way outside it – and managed to make movies that audiences see in theaters. If you’re an aspiring filmmaker, the stories in this book may really resonate with you and be applicable to your own situation. If you’re a film instructor, this supplemental text will inspire your students. If you’re a film fan, this book offers a window into the lives of the people who make the movies that play at the local art-house theater.
