New Documentary on Toni Morrison's Life and Work

Posted by Ashley on 9/6/2018 to News

"The film is a provocative and timely meditation on race, identity, foreignness, and the redemptive power of art." - Ashland Independent Film Festival

Who IS the foreigner? Am I the foreigner in my own home?

The powerful new documentary The Foreigner's Home addresses contemporary notions of identity and belonging through the work of one of America's greatest writers and thinkers, Toni Morrison. Far more than a biography, the film, executive produced by the late director Jonathan Demme, utilizes animation, archival footage, and extensive in-depth interviews to explore some of the most urgent issues of our time and to illuminate art’s power to address them.
