HER BLUEST EYES: SPECIFYING BLACK GREATNESS!
This stunning documentary, “Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am” (2019) directed by Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. Its two hours full of tribute to Morrison by iconic literary figures from Sonia Sanchez to media celebrities like Oprah Winfrey.
It celebrates greatness as a written language about the human experience, illustrated by a selection of Black creativity from artists such as Kara Walker to Kerry James Marshall. It reminds the viewer of America’s ties to human slavery through the backdrop stories (historic references to Black slavery) of what inspired Morrison to write great novels from “Bluest Eyes” to “Beloved”.
Greenfield-Sanders explores her hometown of Lorain, Ohio; Morrison’s childhood experience of an ethnic diverse perception of America. Not using sensational nor romantic devices, Morrison ‘s story is told as her literary works, as an everyday experience. It topped with a dash of sobriety leaving the viewer to hear and see more.
This production also give a honest telling of Morrison’s personal life towards her professional as well as artistic accomplishments. Full of archival interviews with the author from different decades of her life. It creates a myriad, but almost a kaleidoscope effect in viewing her various stages as a single mother, professional editor, literary agent to a visionary!
I went to see this just yesterday, a week after Toni Morrison passed away. I was moved to tears. What a wonderful tribute and how fortunate we are that this film was done before her death. It’s a really well done look at her life and work. I found the interviews with other people quite moving and informative and the chance to hear her talk about her work was truly awesome. I can only imagine what a great professor she must have been. I already was planning to reread some or all of her work. This film definitely cemented that decision. If you have any interest at all in American Literature this film is a must see.
