Screenwriter of Black List and 2022 Nicholl Semifinalist script FINAL JOURNEY, Michael Lee Barlin is an award-winning writer/director who loves to write epic and diverse, world-building dramas and adventure stories with a touch of magic.

His Alzheimer's opus ONE MORE MOMENT was recently requested to be read by Steven Spielberg,

and his award-winning, critically acclaimed indie feature THE PIG FARM was hailed by Amy Taubin of THE VILLAGE VOICE as

"A very talented, weirdly ingratiating, strangely sophisticated, gross-out gangster flick."
