M.A. Littler is one of the last remaining mavericks of independent film - dedicated to personal cinema made outside of the stronghold of the television & studio system.

Over the past 20 years, M.A. Littler's films have gathered an international cult following for their uncompromising aesthetic and portrayal of marginalized art & music, radical politics and maverick minds.

 

In his films and writing, he has displayed an unhidden affinity for outsiders of all sorts - radical intellectuals, outlaw historians, marginalized artists, obscure musicians, and holy con men. 

 

When asked about this, Littler says: 

 

"I'm interested in people who dance to their own beat, prototypes who fix their radio with a blow torch."

M.A. Littler's selected poems "Love Is An Ancient Disease" are available at Zinn Books.
