Ivor Davis: Up Close and Personal with David Leaf
David Leaf, is the pre-eminent expert on Brian Wilson, the genius behind the Beach Boys. His instant classic book on The Beach Boys was the first to recognize Brian Wilson as one of the most significant and influential artists of the 20th century. An updated version of the book, God Only Knows: The story of the Beach Boys and the California Myth, gives an inside look into Wilson’s strife and how he engineered his groundbreaking sound.

In this talk with journalist Ivor Davis, David will give a remarkable inside look at the oft-misunderstood Wilson, as well as topics such as the rivalry between Beatles v. The Beach Boys and John Lennon.

David Leaf is a Peabody and WGAW award-winning writer, director and producer, the creative visionary behind such critically acclaimed films and festival favorites as the Grammy-nominated Beautiful Dreamer: Brian Wilson, winner of the Exhibitors’ Award at The Venice Film Festival The U.S. vs. John Lennon, and The Bee Gees: This Is Where I Came In. Most recently, he directed the feature documentary Dion: Born To Cry, on the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer (currently in post-production), wrote, produced and directed To Tell The Truth about the WWII Japanese internment camps, and was a consultant for the HBO feature documentary The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart? Leaf’s television credits include being one of the writers on the Emmy-winning America: A Tribute To Heroes about 9/11. That same year, Leaf wrote and produced TNT’s acclaimed An-All Star Tribute To Brian Wilson and was a producer of the Emmy-nominated Billy Joel: In His Own Words.
