Joan Didion is not just the voice of a generation, but considered one of the most influential American writers alive. Despite wide recognition for her giant repertoire, Didion’s nephew, documentarian John Dunn, notes that no one has ever tried to tackle her story. Now Dunn is directing a documentary about his Aunt Joan, and seeking out funding through Kickstarter. It’s obviously a story people want to hear and campaign support has already gone well above the initial goal of $80,000, with no sign of slowing down.
