Today Sundance Award-winning filmmaker James Scott announces the World Premiere of his short documentary Love Bite: Laurie Lipton and her disturbing black & white drawings which will feature in the documentary shorts competition at SXSW 2016, on the 12th, 13th and 17th March.

Directed & Edited by James Scott (How To Change The World, My Beautiful Broken Brain, The Man Whose Mind Exploded, The Great Hip Hoax, This Band is So Gorgeous, The Search For Weng Weng), Executive Produced by Al Morrow (How To Change The World, The Great Hip Hop Hoax, Donor Unknown and Town of Runners) and featuring Laurie Lipton and Terry Gilliam, Love Bite chronicles Laurie Lipton’s life and prolific body of black & white work as an artist spanning over fifty years.

No one on the planet has drawn more than Laurie Lipton. Largely ignored by the mainstream art world, with millions of tiny strokes of her humble pencil, Laurie’s haunted images seek answers to some of the most uncomfortable themes in our culture. But what compels her to live a life of isolation drawing obsessively for the last five decades is neither black nor white.

Director James Scott said: “Laurie and I are thrilled to be world premiering Love Bite at SXSW in March. It has become one of the premiere festivals on the planet, and the perfect place to reveal her extraordinary body of work spanning five decades to a new audience.”
