Producer Tommy Walker with TONI MORRISON: The Pieces I Am with Reception at The Amsterdam
TONI MORRISON: THE PIECES I AM offers an artful and intimate meditation on the life and works of the legendary storyteller and Nobel prize-winner.
IN PERSON: Sat July 13 1pm Discuss the film with producer Tommy Walker followed by a reception at The Amsterdam Restaurant's backyard - a short walk down the street. $18 / $15 members
In 2005 Walker co-directed and produced the feature-length theatrical documentary, GOD GREW TIRED OF US, about refugees from war-torn Sudan and their subsequent immigration to America, and their experience in a post 9/11 world. The film won Best Documentary as well as the Audience Award at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. More recently, in addition to TONI MORRISON: The Pieces I Am, Walker has produced The Black List, The Latino List, The Out List, and The Trans List for HBO, as well as The Boomer List and The Women's List for PBSs American Masters series.
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, American history and the human condition as seen through the prism of her own work.
