Director Biography - Arthur Egeli


Arthur Egeli Biography

Arthur Egeli is a fine artist and a filmmaker living in Provincetown, Massachusetts. He has produced and directed five feature films and sold over a dozen original screenplays, including the award winning “The Art of Passion” (Miramax) and “Getting It Real”. For his art, he has received awards from the Portrait Society of America, the Oil Painters of America, and the American Impressionist society.

Arthur Egeli is third generation painter. His grandfather, Bjorn Egeli (1900-1984), painted official portraits of Eisenhower, Nixon, and MacArthur. His father and mother are both award winning portrait painters. Overwall, there are twelve working artists in the extended family.

Arthur began his studies with his father and mother in the winter and in the summer, with Henry Hensche at the Cape School of Art. His experiences would nurture a life long love of Provincetown and inspire his first feature film, “The Art of Passion”, which won the $110,000 jury prize at the Hamptons International Film Festival.

In Pasadena, he met his wife, actress Heather Hayes, who would collaborate with Arthur on three films to date, including the Ghost Forest, Misconception and upcoming Murder on Cape Cod.

In 2005, following the birth of their daughter, Arthur and Heather opened Egeli Gallery in Provincetown. The gallery soon expanded from a summer business to a thriving year around business, representing not only emerging contemporary artists such as John Clayton and Margaret McWethy, but masters from Provincetown’s past, like Charles Hawthorne, John Whorf, George Elmer Browne and Henry Hensche. Today, Arthur and Heather reside year around in Provincetown, Massachusetts, producing art and films and raising their two children.

Director Statement

I had been casually channel surfing one night in February, 2002, and an image caught my eye. It was an old friend of mine, Tony Jackett, being interviewed on 48 Hours about a murder! I had gotten to know Tony in 1993 when he and his daughter had appeared as extras in my film The Art of Passion, which we shot in Provincetown, Massachusetts. P-town, as the locals call it, had been his family home for generations and our summer home. Tony was a local character, a strikingly good looking man of Portuguese descent. When I arrived that spring, Tony told me the whole story and that became the basis for "Murder on Cape Cod".
