Toni Morrison at the Louvre
The Foreigner’s Home is a feature-length documentary film that explores the vision and work of Toni Morrison through “The Foreigner’s Home,” the 2006 exhibition she guest-curated at the Louvre. Morrison invited renowned artists whose work also deals with the experience of cultural and social displacement to join her in a public conversation that she had been pursuing for years through her own research and writing and in her teaching at Princeton University. The film expands that conversation, combining exclusive and unreleased footage of the Nobel Laureate in dialogue with artists—first, in Paris in 2006 and then, in 2015, at her home in New York state—with extensive archival film footage, music, and still images to present a series of candid and incisive exchanges about race, identity, “foreignness,” and art’s redemptive power.
We are thrilled to announce that The Foreigner's Home will have its World Premiere this January at the 47th International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR) in the Netherlands. The film is part of IFFR's program Pan-African Cinema Today for January 26 & 28. See more details HERE.
