A new incredibly interesting documentary, The Chainsaw Artist, is finishing up production this week. The documentary is a Positive Street production, directed by Marco Bottiglieri and follows world-renowned chainsaw-carving sculptor Stacy Poitras and his unconventional craft. The film will include Poitras’ father-in-law Clint Eastwood, brother-in-law Scott Eastwood, wife Alison Eastwood, Sam Elliott, Titus Welliver, and more.

The final day of production will feature Poitras live sculpting the last pieces of his provocative Seven Deadly Sins wooden sculptures, the focal point of the documentary, on the Venice Beach boardwalk. The sculptures (Envy, Lust, Greed, Gluttony, Sloth, Pride, Wrath) are carved out of massive blocks of wood, with heights of almost seven feet. Iconic L.A. based locations, chosen to reflect the sins featured in the sculptures, are featured in the film.

Wrath by Stacy Poitras

“These sculptures are a social commentary on the human condition and represent the culmination of 30 years of work,” said Poitras. “In addition to the creative process, the documentary  is a protest of sorts using the Seven Deadly Sins to expose how far we’ve come from human connection and dignity.” Culturally Obsessed is excited to see this!

About Stacy Poitras

Stacy Poitras grew up in Plymouth Massachusetts. While attending the prestigious School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, majoring in painting, he decided to give chainsaw carving a try. He started selling pieces right off the bat, enough to leave art school and move to Southern California to pursue his new passion. There, he met his muse, and now wife Alison Eastwood.


His style is figurative/realism. Stacy has been a professional chainsaw artist for over 30 years. His sculptures can be found all over the world. He has won fine art shows and has defeated world champions in chainsaw carving competitions. Stacy and his sculptures have been seen in dozens of newspapers, magazines, TV shows and commercials, including a Super Bowl commercial. Stacy was the creator, supervising producer, and star of his own TV show called CHAINSAW GANG which averaged 1 million viewers per episode.
