Director’s Biography:

Sean Baker

Sean Baker is a writer, director, producer and editor who has made seven independent feature films over the course of the past two decades. His most recent film was the award-winning The Florida Project (2017) which premiered at the Cannes FF. His previous film Tangerine (2015) premiered at the Sundance FF and won an Independent Spirit and two Gotham Awards. Starlet (2012) was the winner of the Robert Altman Independent Spirit Award and his previous two features, Take Out (2004) and Prince of Broadway (2008), were both nominated for the John Cassavetes Independent Spirit Award.


The audacious new film from writer-director Sean Baker starring Simon Rex in a magnetic, live-wire performance, Red Rocket is a darkly funny, raw and humane portrait of a uniquely American hustler and a hometown that barely tolerates him.
