Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am

"Toni Morrison was a treasure, and 'The Pieces I Am' paints a luminous portrait of this cherished writer." - The Advocate

“Toni Morrison’s artistic, cultural and historical legacies are by now firmly established, which doesn’t prevent Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am from revealing them anew and setting them out in an appreciative, and appropriate, package. An eloquent nonfiction biopic that travels creatively through the past, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders’ film is enlivened both by its own storytelling dexterity and by the participation of its subject.

‘The doc begins with Morrison recalling how she learned “words have power” from her grandfather, whose constant re-reading of the Bible during an era when it was illegal for African-Americans to be literate was a “revolutionary act” that opened her eyes to prose’s capacity to move, enlighten and transform. Though she too would come to love reading, her path to the 1993 Nobel Prize in literature — and universal acclaim — would not be a straight one.

“Mixing archival photos and TV footage with straightforward to-the-camera remembrances, Greenfield-Sanders’ film locates the heart of the author’s inspirations and attitudes, as well as her guiding ethos to capture grand national truths while focusing on the complex interior particulars of individual experience,’ - Variety
