Book-to-film adaptations: The art of filmmaking
Canaan Land, a controversial new novel by Richard Rossi, has rocked the church world with its expose of fraudulent healing techniques by televangelists who take advantage of followers in times of world crisis. Filmmaker Richard Rossi’s Canaan Land novel and film addresses such issues as ministers “fleecing the flock.”
Most recently, his novel Canaan Land has now become available on https://buff.ly/3d7iiZC , with a feature film version, directed by and starring Rossi, to be released later this year. The “Canaan Land” novel tells the story of a con man preacher, abused by another preacher as a boy, who falls for a sincere Christian woman and realizes his con game isn’t a game anymore. Both the book and the film are, in part, a reflection on Rossi’s own spiritual journey as a former “faith healer” and the bitter lessons he learned.
His new life ministry is geared towards the spiritual renewal and creative expression of others. Renaissance man Richard Rossi is an American filmmaker, actor, writer, radio host, and maverick minister. His previous books include Stick Man and Sister Aimee.
His films as Producer/Director include Baseball’s Last Hero: 21 Clemente Stories (2013) and Sister Aimee (2006). The Canaan Land film is executive produced by and co-stars Rebecca Holden, co-star of the Knight Rider TV series. The film also includes cameos by TV and film stars such as Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman), Cindy Williams (Laverne and Shirley) and more.
