Description

Duality, humiliation, mass media violence, materialism and sexism are just a few of the many themes found in C. W. Schultz's work. In his fourth book, Schultz focuses on the most mysterious yet inevitable topic of all... death. A BOOK ABOUT A FILM is a matchless thriller revolving around the low-budget neo-noir movie called THE CORNFIELD PEOPLE, which follows journalist Joe Fischer as he investigates the titular group. The Cornfield People are a secret society that know the meaning of life and what comes after death. It is essential to the Cornfield People that their knowledge remain hidden from outsiders, and they will stop at nothing to protect their secret. Schultz's completion of A BOOK ABOUT A FILM surveys censorship through the means of violence. The book acts as a novelization of the movie while also examining the film's hidden messages, motifs and haunting obscurity. Some have called THE CORNFIELD PEOPLE an incomplete film, while others believe it never existed; however, many believe that the film is banned under suspicious circumstances, with the intention of erasing it from history. Schultz sets out to prove the film's authenticity and that there's something more sinister behind its scarcity. A BOOK ABOUT A FILM includes rare images of the unreleased CORNFIELD PEOPLE.show more
