Director Richard Schenkman discusses The Man from Earth: Holocene

November 2, 2017 A DGA Q&A in Los Angeles

An almost immortal being’s secret existence is uncovered in Director Richard Schenkman’s new sci-fi drama, The Man from Earth: Holocene.

In the sequel to his 2007 feature The Man from Earth, Schenkman’s film continues the story of John Oldman, a 14,000 year-old being comfortably hiding in plain sight as a college professor in Northern California. But when four students discover his secret, his existence comes crashing down, putting his life in grave danger and potentially shaking the foundations of humankind.

Following the DGA membership screening in Los Angeles on November 5, Schenkman sat down with Director Larry Brand (Beyond Glory) to discuss the making of The Man from Earth: Holocene.

In addition to The Man from Earth: Holocene, Schenkman’s credits include the feature films Mischief Night, Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies, The Man from Earth, And Then Came Love, Went to Coney Island on a Mission from God... Be Back by Five, The Pompatus of Love; and the movies for television Muckraker! and A Diva's Christmas Carol. He has been a DGA member since 1986.
