MSPIFF programmer Craig Laurence Rice’s documentary of the great American Renaissance Man Gordon Parks is an intimate examination of the rich body of work Parks left behind. Filmed when Parks was 88 years-old, Half Past Autumn looks at Parks as a groundbreaking photographer, composer, novelist, poet, painter, lecturer, biographer, co-founder of Essence magazine, and, of course, filmmaker.
