An Artist Working as a Letter Carrier – documentary film

We’ve all seen the films about the famous artists, the successful artists, but I don’t think anyone really looks at the so called “failed artist,” or the struggling artist.

“An Artist Working as a Letter Carrier – William P. Campbell” is a trans-generational experimental documentary film about an artist father by an artist daughter, long after the father’s death. A personal, sometimes funny – sometimes painful film, it explores themes around art, failure, love, family, and class. The film is feature length, and is now in the post-production stage.

“’An Artist Working as a Letter Carrier’ reconfigures the bio-documentary genre and redistributes the myth of the artist.” -Ulrike Müller
