This is an “Exclusive Pre-release Screening” as it is not released until 27th June 2017!
The Writer with No Hands is a British documentary, which follows academic Matthew Alford as he tries to establish that the accidental death of Hollywood screenwriter Gary Devore was actually an assassination by the US government. The film premiered at Hot Docs in 2014 but was left undistributed for over three years. A second version of the film, with a new producer, score, and run time, is due for release on Amazon and iTunes on 27 June 2017, the twentieth anniversary of Devore’s disappearance.
On Friday 27 June 1997, Devore had been driving home after completing a new feature film script. He was last seen at a Denny’s Diner in the Mohave Desert around 1am on the morning of the 28th. The subsequent manhunt remained unsuccessful until the following July when an amateur detective located fragments of Devore’s car next to the California Aqueduct near Palmdale.
The California Highway Patrol’s investigation concluded that Devore must have driven the wrong way along the highway, crashed into the water and drowned in his vehicle.
