ABOUT THE FILM:

Hailed as “William Faulkner by way of B-movie film noir, porn paperbacks and Sun Records rockabilly,” poet, author, and screenwriter Barry Gifford has given the world more than forty works, including the Sailor and Lula novels that inspired David Lynch’s WILD AT HEART. Featuring Willem Dafoe, Matt Dillon, and Lili Taylor, ROY’S WORLD: BARRY GIFFORD’S CHICAGO brilliantly brings to life Gifford’s autobiographical collection of stories, capturing a vanished 1950s Chicago through a jazzy, impressionistic combination of beguiling archive footage, animation, and spoken word.

“Barry Gifford is a killer f**kin’ writer … ROY’S WORLD captures his childhood and that time in Chicago, and many other places. I really enjoyed watching it and then contemplating what goes on inside a person with this history. I really love that world and the things that can happen there.”  – David Lynch
