Meanwhile is the new film by American independent filmmaker, Hal Hartley. Meanwhile concerns Joe Fulton (DJ Mendel), a man who can do anything from fixing your sink to arranging international financing for a construction project. He produces online advertising and he's written a big fat novel. He's also a good drummer, but success eludes him. For Joe can't keep himself from fixing other people's problems - his own ambitions are constantly interrupted by his willingness and ability to go out of his way tohelp others.
