The Foreigner’s Home + intro by Counterpoints Arts + discussion

A provocative meditation on humanity’s oldest divisions, based around Toni Morrison’s artistic and intellectual vision.

‘Who is the foreigner?’ asked internationally renowned author Toni Morrison at ‘The Foreigner’s Home,’ her 2006 exhibition at the Louvre. Through archival footage, animation and exclusive interviews, this documentary (exec produced by the late Jonathan Demme, who adapted Morrison’s novel Beloved) provides a provocative and timely meditation on humanity’s oldest divisions. It explores Morrison’s artistic and intellectual vision through a series of candid exchanges about race, identity, ‘foreignness,’ and art’s redemptive power.
