Graham Sack, PhD Candidate, publishes NY Times VR film, "Lincoln in the Bardo"

Thursday, February 16, 2017

The film is a companion to George Saunders’ new eponymous novel that tells the story of a grieving president as he spends the night in the cemetery where his beloved son lies in rest. The film visualizes Lincoln’s haunting experience – and gives voice to the ghosts that populate Saunders’ evocative tale.

The film is a co-production by The New York Times, Plympton, Sensorium and Graham Sack. It was directed and written by Graham Sack. George Saunders collaborated on the adaptation.

Lincoln in the Bardo is available on nytimes.com at this link and in the NYT VR app, which is free and available to download on the Play Store and App Store.
