Art House Cinema Series
Pearl Fryar went from being a small-town sharecropper’s son to an internationally acclaimed artist. A Man Named Pearl chronicles Fryar’s extraordinary life focusing on his position as the celebrated cultural and spiritual icon of his impoverished town. Now 68, the soft-spoken artist is a topiary sculptor, whose medium is discarded or junk plant life and whose canvas is his magical and fantastical garden. He has one wish for those who wander through his living art — they must leave feeling differently than when they arrived.
Co-director Scott Galloway will be participating in a post-screening Q&A via skype.
