Treva Wurmfeld’s touching SHEPARD & DARK is the story of a friendship that spans the decades. The film details the relationship American playwright and actor Sam Shepard and his friend and fellow writer Johnny Dark as the pair embark upon a project to publish their many years of personal correspondence. But while Shepard has ascended into a rarified position as one of the finest writers of his era, Dark’s own story is one of professional struggle and personal good humor. As the old friends reunite to undertake their collaboration, the true nature of their disparate situations yields surprisingly moving results.
