Personal Quote:

It was the Werner Herzog of 1977 that got me into filmmaking. Then as time went on I discovered Robert Altman, Allan Rudolf, Wim Wenders, Godard, etc. Many others. But for the most part, they were not corporately manufactured entertainment. See more »

Hartley paid for college by working alongside his father, uncles, cousins, and brothers as an apprentice steelworker on construction sites in New York City. See more »
