Holy cow that looks awesome. It didn't say anywhere how and when we could see the movie, though...

I definitely want to see this film. I was always--and still am--a fan of Levis' work ("Sensationalism" is one of my favorite poems by anyone who ever breathed on the planet). I was fortunate to have met him before at Phil Levine's house (he had driven many hours straight from Salt Lake City to Fresno) and seemed a bit weary from the drive but glad to have gotten to his destination. Years after his death, I accidently met his sister at a literature conference in Sacramento; I was on a panel of poets talking about how the Valley informed our writings, and I read one of Levis' poems to the crowd. Afterwards, his sister walked up to me and introduced herself and thanked me for reading his poem. I didn't even know she was there, so you can imagine my sense of fate, not coincidence, that she and I were both there if only for the purpose of my reading her brother's poem in her presence.
