Today’s Wall Street Journal has an interesting article about children’s books currently being made for the big screen but not necessarily for their original audiences. (Kids’ Movies Grow Up Oct. 9, 2009) I’m really looking forward to seeing Spike Jonze’s version of Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are which is opening next week.
Another wildly anticipated movie is Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland which is being remade by Tim Burton and starring, you guessed it, Jack Sparrow, Johnny Depp; that should be interesting! (website with trailer)
Elena Kalis is a very talented photographer who has her own take on this classic story with “Alice in Waterland.”
From Kalis’ website:
I was born in Moscow (Russia) and have lived for the past ten years on a small island in the Bahamas with my husband and two children. I have an education in art, but have recently been following my interest in photography. Over the past year I have been doing some underwater projects with my children and friends.
