Dicky Dahl

Dicky Dahl co-wrote and produced THE BALLAD OF RAMBLIN’ JACK, a documentary portrait of cowboy folksinger Ramblin’ Jack Elliott that won the Special Jury Prize for Artistic Achievement at Sundance in 2000 and received wide theatrical distribution. His hybrid memoiresque narrative, THE CURIO, premiered in 2015, marking his feature directorial debut. He’s the co-creator of CRAZY POSSIBLE, a mid-life crisis travel series set along the Continental Divide Trail. His latest project is MR IMMORTAL JELLYFISH MAN, a feature documentary about a Japanese scientist’s quixotic quest to unlock the secret of the immortal jellyfish. He is the co-founder of Great Notion, a Portland, Oregon-based filmmaker cooperative and creative services agency. Dicky grew up in New Jersey dreaming about the west, sang for the art-pop band Stratotanker in New York City, planted trees amongst the Mayans of highland Guatemala and herded goats in the Spanish Sierra Nevada before making his way out west and turning his attention to independent filmmaking.
