A Man Named Pearl DVD + CD SET
Manufacturer: Docurama Brand: NEW VIDEO GROUP
When Pearl Fryar and his wife sought to buy a house in an all-white neighborhood of Bishopville, SC, they were dissuaded with the explanation that Black people don t keep up their yards. Remarkably, instead of fueling bitterness and anger, this comment motivated Pearl to win Bishopville s Yard of the Month award and, eventually, to transform his ordinary suburban yard into a horticultural wonderland. The topiary garden s centerpiece emblazons both its message and Pearl s own philosophy: Love, Peace, and Goodwill. A MAN NAMED PEARL chronicles the story of Pearl s magical garden as well as his extraordinary life, both of which serve as inspirations to his family, his community, and the thousands of visitors who come to experience Pearl s world each year. The film traces Pearl s journey from a small town sharecropper s son to an internationally-acclaimed artist, focusing in particular on his position as the celebrated cultural and spiritual icon of his impoverished town. Now 68, the soft-spoken Pearl has just one wish for all those who wander through his living art; they must leave feeling differently than when they arrived. Stirring and profoundly uplifting, A MAN NAMED PEARL offers a captivating window into the life a man who turned obstacles into breathtakingly beautiful possibilities. Special Features: Bonus CD with the Original Film Score by Composer Fred Story; Pearl Fryar & Co-director Scott Galloway Update; Composer Interview; Filmmaker Bios "It's the one time i...

Oscar-nominated for Best Documentary in 2008 THE GARDEN has been hailed by critics as the most astute and powerful political film of the year. Filmmaker Scott Hamilton Kennedyas (award-winning director of OT: OUR TOWN) brilliantly captures, in a series of explosive and wrenching turn of events, the ways greedy developers, inept politicians and self-serving acommunitya leaders can run rough shod over the lives of working class families fighting to save the 14-acre urban farm that has become the very source of survival. Equal parts THE WIRE and HARLAN COUNTY, USA, THE GARDEN, exposes the fault lines in American society and raises crucial and challenging questions about liberty, equality, and justice for the poorest and most vulnerable among us. As the battle lines are drawn between this group of low-income families struggling to protect a 14-acre urban farm against a backdrop of grey and hardened skyscrapers, their cause became an international sensation that drew the attention of numerous notable activists and politicians, including Dennis Kucinich, Joan Baez, Danny Glover, and Willie Nelson. This 2009 Oscar-nominated documentary may have been made on the fly and a shoestring, but the impact of the issues it addresses about race, politics, class, wealth, corruption, and the heat of human emotion more than make up for the patchwork of video interviews and jerky vÃ©ritÃ© action. The subject is the South Central Farm, a 14-acre patch of blighted city blocks located in the are...
