Lars Beckerman lives in a quaint seaside village south of San Francisco and north of Guatemala. He is married to an exotic Himalayan woman with superb penmanship and is the proud father of 17 children – not all of them very smart, but all extremely well-intended. He enjoys whittling, duck calling, line dancing and spicy foods. His knowledge of film was derived from a brief stint as a production assistant and personal valet to legendary filmmaker Orson Welles. While on location in Big Bear filming The Magnificent Ambersons (1942), Welles was overheard saying, after an excruciatingly long day on the set, “Hell if I know! Ask Lars Beckerman, why don’t you? He knows more about film than the rest of us combined – and he’ll teach us all a thing or two about freshness if we open our damn ears!”

  1. Is this the same film “guru” who was instrumental in producing the early “90s move “Death of a Kiwi B*stard”?
