Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am
Through Aug. 29
"This generous and intelligent documentary [is] less a biography than an extended essay, which is entirely a good thing."-A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"Moving and profound... does so many things so well that it's often like watching several fine films at once. Look for this one to be front and center in its category come Oscar time."-Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
As a venue that celebrates all art forms and a public program of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Gene Siskel Film Center mourns the loss of the celebrated Black author and Nobel laureate Toni Morrison and had already scheduled a run of the acclaimed documentary TONI MORRISON: THE PIECES I AM to be presented one week only from Friday, August 23 through Thursday, August 29 at the Gene Siskel Film Center. Directed by longtime friend and noted photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, this documentary portrait of the great African American novelist is as rich and abundant as the extraordinary woman it depicts. At its heart is a meaty interview with Morrison, a warm but formidable presence as she recalls her remarkable life as a book-crazy girl in an Ohio steel town, a schoolteacher raising two children on her own, an influential editor at Random House, and an author who revolutionized writing about race in America en route to winning the Nobel Prize. The film's perspective is broadened by friends and admirers including Oprah Winfrey, Angela Davis, Sonia Sanchez, and Fran Lebowitz, while, in the manner of Morrison's celebrated anthology The Black Book, a steady stream of archival materials and works by notable Black artists (Jacob Lawrence, Gordon Parks, Kara Walker, et al.) evokes the immensity of African American experience to which she gave such eloquent shape. http://www.siskelfilmcenter.org/toni-morrison-the-pieces-i-am
