Referred to by Roger Ebert as “the conscience of American independent filmmaking,” John Sayles is the writer/director of 18 movies, including Matewan, Lone Star, Eight Men Out, and Passion Fish. In addition to writing more than 100 screenplays, he is the author of four novels and two short story collections, including Pride of the Bimbos, Union Dues, and Dillinger in Hollywood. His work has earned two nominations for the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, the Golden Globe, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award. In Yellow Earth, Sayles spins a parable about Native American resistance to corporate and governmental forces.
