Final project for my Graduate Cinematography class at Emerson College. The assignment was to find a book that we love, then find an excerpt that creates the potential for a powerful visualization of the words. To find text that you feel you can make stronger through your particular vision of it. The book I chose was "The Yiddish Policemen's Union" by Michael Chabron. Adapted, Directed, Cinematography, and Editing by me, Eric Van der Vynckt.
