Cats, Books, Art: Watch a Trailer for the Edward Gorey Documentary


Books, cats, life is good — especially now that we know about an upcoming Edward Gorey documentary. Filmmaker Christopher Seufert was granted unprecedented access to the eccentric, book-loving artist Edward Gorey, capturing his life, work, and daily routines on video from 1996 until his death in 2000. The documentary takes us inside Gorey’s home on Cape Code, Massachusetts — since converted to the museum, The Edward Gorey House. The film will also feature rare interviews with Gorey’s friends and collaborators. The project is headed to the Sundance Film Festival this fall. Support the campaign now for access to the documentary archive, which contains oodles of behind-the-scenes updates and clips. [Spotted via @Little_Quirk]
