A long-awaited documentary about American author Joan Didion is now in progress, according to Vogue.

The film is titled We Tell Ourselves Stories In Order to Live, a reference to one of her lines. Griffin Dunne—actor, filmmaker, and Didion’s nephew—is behind the project.

The trailer gives a glimpse of Didion’s life, work, and deep fervor for writing. “Joan writes to survive,” Dunne says, later adding, “This is a story that I am telling in order to live.” It’s also a plea for funding through its Kickstarter campaign, which will help complete the work.

Watch the trailer below, and donate to the Kickstarter campaign, here.
