TONI MORRISON: THE PIECES I AM

TIMOTHY GREENFIELD-SANDERS

EXCLUSIVELY AT IFI

This film opens on March 6th.

Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am offers an intimate meditation on the life and work of the legendary writer and Nobel Prize winner. From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio, to 1970s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the frontlines with Angela Davis to her own 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. Presented as a rich tapestry of art, history, literature and personality, the film includes discussions about her many critically acclaimed works, including novels The Bluest Eye, Song of Solomon and Beloved – which Oprah Winfrey turned into a feature film – her role as editor of iconic African-American literature, and her time teaching at Princeton University.
