Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am (12A)
Director Timothy Greenfield-Sanders / USA 2019 / 120min
To celebrate We Will Walk – Art and Resistance in the American South at Turner Contemporary, we have collaborated with the Palace Cinema in Broadstairs to programme two special film screenings. The other film screening is Hale County This Morning, This Evening which can be booked separately.
Toni Morrison was one of the few US authors who, from her first published novel The Bluest Eye (1970), wrote for an African American audience, and understood the way language could operate as an oppressive or uplifting force, refusing to let her words be marginalized.
This creative and intimate documentary charts her journey from childhood in an Ohio steel town to book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to being awarded the Nobel prize and working with Oprah Winfrey on the film adaptation of Beloved. Morrison’s novels, explorations of America, history and the human condition, are now taught in schools around the world.
Introduced with an overview of the representation of the civil rights’ era in film.
£7/£6, young people age 14 and under £3.50
Please note that this event is taking place at The Palace Cinema, Harbour Street, Broadstairs CT10 1ET
