Taylor A. Purdee
Taylor A. Purdee’s acclaimed debut as writer-director, Killian & the Comeback Kids – in which he also plays one of the lead roles – has been preserved by The Academy’s core screenplay collection and and is now available on digital. Purdee’s next film, This is Honduras, is a documentary exploration of the relationship between humanitarian aid workers and the post-coup government of Honduras, the “murder capital” of the world. As a producer he has overseen the protection and re-release of screen legend Lee Grant’s documentary work, curating the “virtual repertory series” 20th Century Woman: The Documentary Films of Lee Grant. As an actor, he’s appeared on hit TV shows like Gotham and Marvel’s Iron Fist, and the surprise Finnish hit Nerd: DragonSlayer666. His folk-rock duo, The Cumberland Kids, provided both the original score and original songs for Killian & the Comeback Kids.
