Now here’s a project to get stabbed in the eye for. Just announced at Comic-Con, Will Eisner‘s acclaimed graphic novel about the New York City immigrant experience in the 1930s, “A Contract With God” will be adapted into a live action feature. Four indie filmmakers, Alex Rivera, Sean Baker, Barry Jenkins and Tze Chun have been tapped to direct a chapter each from Eisner’s graphic novel.
Barry Jenkins (SFIAAFF 10) and Tze Chun (SFIAAFF 09) have both screened their films at our film festival and recently, we’ve interviewed Alex Rivera when we visited the 56th Annual Flaherty Film Seminar this past June. Check them out.
