Event Details

Award-winning Omaha journalist Leo Adam Biga has adapted his extensive body of work about acclaimed filmmaker Alexander Payne into a new book. ‘Alexander Payne: His Journey in Film’ is a compilation of Biga's many articles about the writer-director over a 16-year period. The book places readers deep inside Payne's creative process and follows the progress of the cinema artist's Oscar-winning career. Biga will share insights gleaned from visits to Payne's sets and from a recent glimpse at the final edit-mix process on the filmmaker's new feature, ‘Nebraska’; Biga's one of a few outside the filmmaker's inner circle and select festival audiences to have seen the film in its entirety before the Nov. 22 national release. The book is a must read for Payne fans and film buffs.
