Watch Now – Teaser Trailer for "Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth"

Alice Walker: Beauty In Truth is a feature documentary film by British filmmaker, Pratibha Parmar which tells the compelling story of an extraordinary woman’s journey from her birth in a paper-thin shack in cotton fields of Putnam County, Georgia to her recognition as a key writer of the 20th Century, and offers audiences a penetrating look at the life and art of an artist, a self-confessed renegade and human rights activist.

Parmar’s previous credits include A Place of Rage, a documentary about African-American women and the civil rights movement featuring Angela Davis and June Jordan. She has collaborated with Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Alice Walker once before on another documentary, Warrior Marks, which documented female genital mutilation at a time when the subject was taboo globally. Parmar’s debut narrative feature film, multi-award winning Nina’s Heavenly Delights, was released theatrically in the UK and US in 2006/07 and was nominated for a GLAAD Award.
