Documentary Mondays: "I'm Carolyn Parker"
This event is online and in-person.
Join us every Monday for intriguing and compelling real life stories!
Join the Pelham Parkway-Van Nest Library for a free screening of “I’m Carolyn Parker”.
In 2005, Academy Award®-winning director Jonathan Demme set out to document the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Katrina and the rebuilding of New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward. When he met Carolyn Parker, what began as a historical documentary morphed into a vibrant character study of the courage and resiliency of this fearless matriarch and civil-rights activist. I’m Carolyn Parker: The Good, the Mad, and the Beautiful is Demme’s intimate account of Parker’s five-year crusade to rebuild her beloved neon-green house, her church, her community — and her life.
Directed by Johnathan Demme
