#899: The Art of Adaptation with David Kajganich (Bones and All)

By Filmspotting.net

Luca Guadagnino's BONES AND ALL is a coming-of-age story with an unusual twist: cannibalism. Starring Timothée Chalamet and Taylor Russell, the film was adapted by writer David Kajganich from a 2015 novel by Camille DeAngelis. Kajganich had previously written adaptations for Guadagnino's "A Bigger Splash" (based on the 1969 Jacques Deray film "La Piscine") and his 2018 remake of Dario Argento's cult horror film "Suspiria." In his conversation with Adam, Kajganich talks about how his background as a novelist made him uniquely qualified for adaptation work; how to write (and how not to write) exposition; and the surprising subtext of "Bones and All" that the book's author asked him to preserve. And producer Sam Van Hallgren joins Adam for a conversation – recorded live at Iowa City FilmScene's Refocus Film Festival – about some of the best recent book-to-screen adaptations. 1:05 - Interview: David Kajganich ("Bones and All") 41:02 - Next Week / Notes 42:44 - Book-to-Screen Adaptations w/Sam Van Hallgren (Live) 1:41:55 - Outro Learn more about your ad choices.
