BOOKS: A DOCUMENTARY

 
 

This past August, Larry McMurtry, author of Lonesome Dave, The Last Picture Show and Brokeback Mountain, sold over 300,000 antiquarian books from his legendary Booked Up bookshop at auction over two days. This film is the story of those Books.  Filmmakers Mathew Provost and Sara Ossana of Studio Seven7 Films have launched a Kickstarter Campaign to help them complete a documentary about McMurtry, the auction, and the future of the American book trade.

Actor Kevin Chapman, Detective Lionel Fusco on the CBS hit-show Person of Interest, skypes into Film Courage to share his story of how acting found him, why he bypassed New York for Los Angeles, what separates those who make a living acting from those who don’t, how he spends that dead zone time when he is not acting, and he tells about his life on the set of POI.
