The origin story behind one of Broadway's most beloved musicals, Fiddler on The Roof, and its creative roots in early 1960s New York, when "tradition" was on the wane as gender roles, sexuality, race relations and religion were evolving.
For over 30 years, Marion Stokes obsessively and privately recorded American television news 24 hours a day filling 70,000 VHS tapes, capturing wars, talk shows and commercials that show us how television shaped the world of today.
I loved this documentary! It left me feeling inspired and empowered. I have read a few of Ms. Morrison's books. They were complicated, yet I could not put them down. Her books are an insight to the inner workings of her mind: complicated, intense and most of all brilliant!
I was grateful for the opportunity to be given a personal look to the insight of this brilliant, and thoughtful scholar. It makes we want to go out and buy all of her books and reexamine them through a deeper lens.
