Strong praise for “Alexander Payne: His Journey in Film”–
“This is without question the single best study of Alexander Payne’s films, as well as the filmmaker himself and his filmmaking process. In charting the first two decades of Payne’s remarkable career, Leo Adam Biga pieces together an indelible portrait of an independent American artist, and one that’s conveyed largely in the filmmaker’s own words. This is an invaluable contribution to film history and criticism – and a sheer pleasure to read as well.” – Thomas Schatz, Film scholar and author (“The Genius of the System”)
Join Biga in conversation about the filmmaker and his body of work, what people can expect from his new feature “Downsizing” and the making of Biga’s book based on 20 years covering Payne. The book makes a great resource for film buffs, critics, filmmakers, educators and students as well as more casual film fans who want a handy Payne primer and trivia goldmine.
This is the new edition from River Junction Press about the Oscar-winning filmmaker from Omaha. It features new content current to his “Nebraska” and “Downsizing” projects and the addition of a discussion guide and index. A perfect gift for yourself or the cinema lover in your life.
Sells for $25.95. Copies will be available for purchase and signing.
Also available at Barnes & Noble, Our Bookstore, via Amazon and for Kindle.

About History Nebraska
History Nebraska was founded in 1878 as the Nebraska State Historical Society by citizens who recognized Nebraska was going through great changes and they sought to record the stories of both indigenous and immigrant peoples. It was designated a state institution and began receiving funds from the legislature in 1883. Legislation in 1994 changed History Nebraska from a state institution to a state agency. The division is headed by Interim Director and CEO Jill Dolberg. They are assisted by an administrative staff responsible for financial and personnel functions, museum store services, security, and facilities maintenance for History Nebraska.
