Screening of the film The Foreigner’s Home

Featuring Toni Morrison as guest curator at the Louvre Museum

Post screening discussion with

Ford Morrison, film co-producer, and

Summary from container: "The Foreigner's Home explores Toni Morrison's artistic and intellectual vision through 'The Foreigner's Home,' her 2006 exhibition at the Louvre. Through exclusive footage of Morrison in dialogue with artists, along with extensive archival footage, music, and animation, the film presents a series of candid and incisive exchanges about race, identity, 'foreignness,' and art's redemptive power. Based on writings by Toni Morrison and conversations with Edwidge Danticat.“
