The first major film documentary about a largely unsung writer of the twentieth century: John Fante, the renegade author whose highly autobiographical novels illustrate his deep-rooted love of Los Angeles and his struggles working through poverty and prejudice. Born in Denver in 1909, Fante grew up in a working class Italian-American family that was plagued by prejudice and poverty. At 21, he struck out for Los Angeles and wrote the autobiographical novels The Road to Los Angeles, Dreams from Bunker Hill and his most acclaimed work, Ask the Dust, capturing the rhythms of Los Angeles life in prose that later inspired such writers as Charles Bukowski, who famously referred to Fante as "my God." Like Bukowski, Fante shouldered bitter resentments, spending his non-writing hours drinking, gambling and toiling miserably as a Hollywood screenwriter. "A sad flower of the sand" explores Fante's art and life through interviews with those who knew him best: writer/director Robert Towne "...
