Closing Night Documentary- Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth



Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth is a dazzling, courageous portrait of author, poet, gardener, human rights activist, self-confessed renegade, Alice Walker. Walker, who made history as the first black woman to win the Pulitzer Prize for fiction for her groundbreaking novel, “The Color Purple” was born in Georgia in the mid 1940s. Her journey from a family of sharecroppers in the deep South, to the front lines of the black civil rights and feminist movements make for compelling viewing. Her close circle of friends, interviewed in the documentary include Angela Davis, Danny Glover, Jewelle Gomez, Quincy Jones, Howard Zinn, Yoko Ono, Sapphire, Sonia Sanchez, Stephen Spielberg and Gloria Steinem. Director Pratibha Parmar has deftly positioned Walker as an iconic figure in 20th century American culture, intertwining her triumphant life story with a story of a country and its people at the fault line of historical changes.
