Winner of the first-ever Library of Congress / Lavine Family / Ken Burns Prize for Film, Flannery is the lyrical, intimate exploration of the life and work of Catholic author Flannery O’Connor, whose distinctive Southern Gothic style influenced a generation of artists and activists. With her family home at Andalusia (the Georgia farm where she grew up and later wrote her best known work) as a backdrop, a picture of the woman behind her sharply aware, starkly redemptive style comes into focus. Including conversations with those who knew her and those inspired by her (Alice Walker, Tommy Lee Jones, Mary Karr, Conan O’Brien, and more), Flannery employs never-before-seen archival footage, newly discovered personal letters, and her own published words (read by Mary Steenburgen) alongside original animations and music to elevate the life and legacy of an American literary icon.
