News of our Thomas Merton film project hits the wires

Cathleen Falsani just wrote a very nice piece about The Divine Comedy of Thomas Merton, a feature film I’m writing with Hellbound? cinematographer Ben Eisner, who is set to direct this film.

Brian McLaren also just gave our script a glowing endorsement, saying:

Thomas Merton deserves to be known and read by a new generation, and Ben Eisner and Kevin Miller are creating an ideal vehicle to make the introduction. Those who have read Merton will find much here to deepen their understanding of the man, and those who haven’t read him will want to as soon as they leave the theater.

You can read all about the project on our official site and Facebook page. Below is a video Ben cut together a few years ago when he was just beginning to pull this project together.
