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