The documentary film is directed, produced and edited by Sandra Adair. Adair, A.C.E. is an Academy Award-nominated feature film editor (Boyhood) and is making her directorial debut with The Secret Life of Lance Letscher.
Letscher creates poetic, often playful collages out of found objects, such as old letters, newspaper clippings, books, recipes and album covers, all cut and composed into fascinating patterns and textures. A skilled colorist and abstractionist, Letscher’s growing international reputation has resulted in solo shows in England, France, Germany, Poland, Spain. In 2009, his monograph collage was published by the University of Texas Press. His art resides in the collections of the Austin Museum of Art, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts and numerous corporations.
