Wednesday Words: Leo Adam Biga

Dec 11, 2013

KANEKO | 1111 Jones St


Featured writer: Leo Adam Biga
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.”  The book is a must read for Payne fans and film buffs.
