Evi Quaid

Powered by imdb

Evi Quaid Is an American Film Director and Quaid left home permanently at age 12. Her Greek grandfather financed her education at five different New England boarding schools, all of which she was summarily expelled from for intentionally altering the interpretation of school regulations such as bedtime curfews, dress codes, and for escaping campus boundaries after dark. After four years of attendance at five schools, her high school diploma was withheld for bad behavior. While pursuing her film and visual arts projects, Evi Quaid is Married to actor Randy Quaid . While working to create diverse characters for photographers, Evi developed a penchant for imprinting humor and immediate gratification on the viewer. In her early work, she experiments with stereotypes of the nude to such an extreme, photographers found their own work unrecognizable, even somewhat vulgar. She sought to push boundaries to create nudes that reverse the traditional focus away from the breast, while exposing elements bare to penetrate in a confrontational and liberal manner, both inviting and repelling. Nude portraits of Evi have been prominently featured in Helmut Newton's exhibitions, including "Sex and Landscapes", which appeared at the Mary Boone Gallery in the United States, and at the De Pury Luxembourg Gallery in Europe. Numerous portraits of Evi have also appeared in Italian, American, and British Vogue. Evi wrote and directed her first feature length film entitled The Debtors, which gained praise when it was accepted into the Toronto International Film Festival in 1998. Peirs Handling writes, "Evi's directorial debut adopts the style and mannerisms of the screwball comedies of Hollywood's greatest era. Evi has fearlessly updated the formula." (Toronto Film Festival, 1998) When the film was ultimately banned from release, Evi managed to set legal precedent in preserving the rights of the filmmaker to protect his or her creation against the interference of a financier. Evi Quaid is the second woman in feature film history, after Ida Lupino, to direct her own husband in a feature film.  See full bio on IMDb »
