F11 and Be There

Season 5 Episode 501 56m 46s

April 6, 2020 - F11 and Be There is a commentary on American civil rights, race, social justice, and art, told through the many lenses of legendary Life and Magnum photographer Burk Uzzle. With a career that began in the 1950s, Burk Uzzle has created some of the most iconic photographs in American history. This film is a journey alongside one of America's greatest visual poets as he makes museum exhibitions with a local African American community in eastern North Carolina, travels America's backroads in search of hidden treasures of Americana, and using his vast archive as a guide, confronts race, inequality, and injustice through the many parallels of the 20th and 21st centuries.
