John Sayles American IndependentJohn Sayles—American Independent

Writer, actor, and director John Sayles has been telling stories now for decades—the stories he wants to tell, on his terms. His films consistently convey a moral integrity, often challenging political and social ideologies—subjects found less and less in studio-financed projects. His carefully chosen locations become characters, presenting American regions with a keen sense of realism. With his hands-on approach to every part of the filmmaking process, it is no wonder that his name has become synonymous with American independent cinema.
