Description

We’re proud to partner with our friends at The Betsy Hotel on Miami Beach & FIU to offer a special presentation of the documentary, F11 AND BE THERE. Thanks to their support, we’re able to offer this film to you for FREE on Monday, May 3rd @ 7:00pm (EST)!

 

F11 AND BE THERE is an Emmy nominated documentary film that explores civil rights, equality, race, social justice, photography and art through the life and artistic legacy of famed Life Magazine and Magnum Photos photographer Burk Uzzle. While traversing Uzzle’s 65+ year legacy, this documentary film finds its center in his contemporary portraiture work with African Americans in Eastern North Carolina. This film is a journey alongside one of America's greatest visual poets as he makes museums exhibitions with a local community, travels America's backroads in search of hidden treasures of Americana, and using his vast archive as a guide, confronts race, inequality, and injustice through the many parallels of the 20th and 21st centuries. F11 AND BE THERE is a historical document, a non-linear pastiche of a life well lived, a musically driven homage to craft and artistic process, and a love letter to one man's life-long dedication to the idea of equality.
