Silver City
Official Section

Set in Colorado, the heart of the ?New West?, during the election campaigns for state governor, Silver City is a political satire with noir overtones. The new candidate with his grammatical failings is heir to a formidable dynasty of right-wing politicians. While trying to forge a path to the governor?s office, the appearance of a mysterious corpse threatens his campaign, his family empire and the backing of the pressure groups who move the strings. His sharp campaign ace hires the services of a journalist who specializes in blowing the lid off corruption now turned private eye to investigate the potential connection between the anonymous body and the worst enemies of the aspirer?s family.
Schenectady (New York), 1950. Using his earnings as a writer of creature features, he funded what was to be his debut as a director, screenwriter and editor, Return of the Secausus Seven (1980), which helped to launch the independent filmmaker?s movement in the USA, followed, among others, by Lianna (1983), City of Hope (1991), Passion Fish (1992), Lone Star (1996), Men with Guns (1998), presented at San Sebastian?s Official Section, Limbo (1999), Sunshine State (2002) and Casa de los babys (2003). The San Sebastian Festival dedicated a retrospective to him in 1994.
