Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am

We’re celebrating International Women’s Day 2020 with the critically-acclaimed documentary, Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am. The film offers an artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the legendary storyteller and Nobel prize-winner.

From her childhood in the steel town of Lorain, Ohio, to ‘70s-era book tours with Muhammad Ali, from the front lines 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 own literature. 

 ‘Remarkable… celebrates the much-loved and lauded literary figure with artistry, gravitas and grace’ – LA Times

‘It reminds us how long she had to wait for the recognition she so richly deserved, and what a distinctive, generous, funny, astute, self-doubting, unstoppable and formidable figure she was along the way’ – The Wall Street Journal
