Mini Bio (1)
Reno Dakota has said he wasn't really aware that he was making a feature film when he shot his now-classic docuportrait, American Fabulous (1992). His only aim at the time was to capture the personality of his friend, Jeffrey Strouth. The film's release to a gush of nationwide critical praise generated a faithful, if scattered, cult following and has even spawned an off-off Broadway play based on it in 2002.
Dakota, an Ohio native, has lived in New York since 1982. He himself is the subject of The Magnetic Fields' song that bears his name. Reno Dakota's next feature, Damnation, which he wrote and will direct, is a dark and sexy clan war dramedy set in wild, wild West Virginia.
