Joan Didion is one of my favorite writers, so I am thrilled to see this new project on Kickstarter, We Tell Ourselves Stories In Order to Live, the first and only documentary about Joan Didion.
"We Tell Ourselves Stories In Order to Live traces the arc of Joan’s life through her own writings, and in her own voice. Our film will tell Joan’s story through passages she has chosen (and will read aloud) from her work, as her friends, family, colleagues and critics share their a accounts of her remarkable life and writing. Patti Smith, Vanessa Redgrave, Allison Janney, Graydon Carter, Robert Silvers, and Bret Easton Ellis are just a few of the people we’ll interview."
I am definitely backing this project, will you join me?
