FREE! Going To Mars: The Nikki Giovanni Project
Our FREE monthly collaboration with the Knox County Public Library’s Tennessee Archive of Moving Image & Sound presents a special theatrical screening of this unconventional documentary on the legendary Knoxville-born writer, educator and activist Nikki Giovanni.
GOING TO MARS: THE NIKKI GIOVANNI PROJECT travels through time and space to reveal the enduring influence of Nikki Giovanni, one of America’s greatest living artists and social commentators. Giovanni reckons with the inevitable passing of time in intimate vérité and revealing archival footage. The film is a collision of memories, moments in American history, live readings, and visually innovative treatments of her poetry.
“Breaks the traditional documentary format and presents a raw, sensitive, and lyrical portrait of its subject.” – Chicago Reader
