He is the director of 17 films, all of which he wrote and most of which he edited. He writes fiction and has published several novels and collections of short stories. His new novel “A Moment in the Sun”, set around 1900 in Cuba, US, and the Philippines, will be published by McSweeney’s in May 2011.
Sayles supports his directing career as a “writer for hire” in Hollywood. His work is often uncredited but recently he wrote and received credit on SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES. He is one of the prime movers of U.S. independent cinema. Some of his works include Matewan (1987), Passion Fish (1992), The Secret of Roan Inish (1994), and Lone Star (1996). In February 2010, Sayles began shooting in the Philippines his 17th film, Amigo, a fictional account of events during the Philippine-American war. With an ensemble cast of respected Filipino and American thespians and a 100% Filipino crew, Sayles completed filming in six weeks. Today, exactly one year later, he is back in the Philippines, together with his producing partner, Maggie Renzi and the Filipino cast, to bring Amigo to the Filipino public.
