Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am-Documentary (PG-13) 120 minutes

TONI MORRISON: THE PIECES I AM  DOCUMENTARY (PG-13) An artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the legendary storyteller and Nobel Prize prize-winner. From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio, to ‘70's-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines with Angela Davis to her riverfront writing room-Toni Morrison leads an assembly of her peers, critics, and colleagues on an exploration of race, America, history and the human condition as seen through the prism of her literature. Inspired to write because no one took a "little black girl" seriously, Morrison reflects on her lifelong deconstruction of the master narrative. Woven together with a rich collection of art, history, literature, and personality, the film includes discussions about her many critically acclaimed works. Notable Awards received: Nobel Prize for Literature; Pulitzer Prize for Fiction; Presidential Medal of Freedom.
