Larry Flynt, Beowulf, The Wizard Of Gore, and Bob Bailey's Disco Balls will present the Denver Premiere of his debut feature film as a director, What Is It? with an in person at the Starz FilmCenter. Glover's appearance will include a Q & A after the film screening and a presentation of his "Big Slide Show", preceding the film, which features illustration and commentary from eight of his books, followed by a signing of his books RAT CATCHING, OAK MOT, and WHAT IT IS, AND HOW IT IS DONE.
What Is It? premiered at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival and won Best Narrative Film at the 2005 Ann Arbor Film Festival. In the same year Mr. Glover was awarded the prestigious Maverick Award from the Method Fest which was presented to him by esteemed film director Werner Herzog.
Known for creating many memorable, incredibly quirky characters onscreen as an actor, Glover's first effort as a director will not disappoint fans of his offbeat sensibilities and eccentric taste. Featuring a cast largely comprised of actors with Down's Syndrome, the film is not about Down's Syndrome. Glover describes it as "Being the adventures of a young man whose principal interests are snails, salt, a pipe and how to get home as tormented by an hubristic racist inner psyche." In addition to writing and directing What Is It?, Glover also appears in the film as an actor in the role of "Dueling Demi-God Auteur and The young man's inner psyche." Fairuza Balk voices one of the snails.
