Toni Morrison, 1931-2019. Filmmakers in Person!
United States | 2018 | Rian Brown, Geoff Pingree
In 2006, novelist Toni Morrison guest-curated an exhibition at the Louvre, “The Foreigner’s Home,” that dealt with cultural and social displacement. As part of the show, Morrison engaged in public conversations with visual artists about the idea of “foreignness.” This recent movie by two Oberlin filmmakers combines video footage of that historic show in Paris with new footage of Morrison shot in the U.S. Archival film clips, photographs, music, and animation further amplify the film’s discussion of race, identity, refugees, and the redemptive power of art. Co-directors Rian Brown and Geoff Pingree will answer audience questions after the screening.
