A new documentary about Toni Morrison is coming to theaters on June 21.
Toni Morrison: The Pieces I Am includes interviews with the author and many who know her well, including Oprah Winfrey, Russell Banks, and Fran Lebowitz, in covering her wide career as a writer and book editor.
Morrison is best known for Song of Solomon, which received the National Book Critics Circle Award, and Beloved, which won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction; she is also the first African-American woman to have won the Nobel Prize for Literature.
In the lead-up to the film’s release, Publishers Weekly interviewed its director, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, about the challenges he faced in its production and the artistic decisions he made, among other topics.
