FILMMAKER JOHN SAYLES - Diane Howe Eberly
Filmmaker John Sayles has always been an iconoclast in his work - one who attacks established beliefs, customs and institutions.
Sayles filmÃ¢â¬â¢s have mostly been about the Ã¢â¬Åworking ManÃ¢â¬?Ã¢â¬Â¦.Among his best known works include Ã¢â¬ÅLone StarÃ¢â¬?, Ã¢â¬Å8 Men outÃ¢â¬?, Ã¢â¬ÅBrother From Another PlanetÃ¢â¬?, and most recently, Ã¢â¬ÅSunshine StateÃ¢â¬?.
It was during the making of that film with his cast and crew- expressing their disbelief of the emphasis on chads rather than voters were expunged from the voting rolls that in 2000 that spurred his interest to make a politically resonant film for the 2004 Election.
Now comes Ã¢â¬ÅSilver CityÃ¢â¬?, being released in some cities across the country today -though not until next week in the Tampa Bay Area.
