GRANT MORRISON: TALKING WITH GODS
Dir. Patrick Meaney
Featuring Grant Morrison, Geoff Johns, Frank Quitely, Dan DiDio, Frazer Irving, Cameron Stewart, Jill Thompson, Mark Waid.
GRANT MORRISON: TALKING WITH GODS examines Morrison’s 30-year career and the real-life events that inspired his stories. Featuring extensive interviews with Morrison himself, the film delves into his early days growing up in Scotland, the start of his career in comics, the crazy years of the ’90s as his life and his comics became enmeshed, and his recent attempts to turn personal troubles and social darkness into compelling comics. The film also gives insight into his creative process, including a look into his vaunted idea notebooks.
This is the first ever feature-length documentary on the mysterious and iconic Grant Morrison, one of the most critically-acclaimed and best-selling writers in the history of comics, known for the groundbreaking, counter-cultural THE INVISIBLES and for bold reinventions of superheroes ALL STAR SUPERMAN, ANIMAL MAN, DOOM PATROL, NEW X-MEN and BATMAN.
“I was living it, y’know. I’d become the character. I was going to the places. I was doing the rituals. I was hanging out with the gods and then putting it back in the comic. That one was bringing me to the verge of death.” –Grant Morrison
“Bold, brave, and honest. A fascinating study of the man behind some of the most influential & controversial comics.” –Ain’t It Cool News
