Sunday @ 2 Films: Gordon Parks Double Feature

Sunday, June 10, 12:30 pm to 4pm

 

Half Past Autumn: The Life and Works of Gordon Parks (12:30 pm)

(90 minutes) This documentary takes an intimate look at the life and career of Gordon Parks, a celebrated photographer, novelist, journalist, poet, musician, and filmmaker. The film traces his life and career from abject poverty in Kansas City, to his unprecedented rise as a top photographer for Vogue, Life, and other magazines. The film also documents his later years as a filmmaker and composer up to 2006, the year of his death.

 

The Learning Tree (2pm)

(107 minutes) Gordon Parks directed this powerful film based on his autobiographical novel about growing up in Kansas-learning about love, fear, violent racial injustice and, during an emotional murder trial, his own capacity for honor.  Ice Cream Sundaes will be served from Taharka Brothers, while supplies last.

 

In conjunction with Reflections: Intimate Portraits of Iconic African Americans.
