Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am documentary (United States, 2019, 120 minutes, color and b/w) Directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders Official Trailer
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.
