F11 And Be There

Season 5, Episode 1 of 10

F11 and Be There is a commentary on American civil rights, race, social justice, and art, told through the many lenses of legendary photographer Burk Uzzle. With a career that spans over 65 years, Burk Uzzle has created some of the most iconic photographs in American history. This film is a journey alongside one of America's greatest visual poets as he makes museum 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. As vibrant and whimsical as many of his photographs are, so too are his musings about the philosophies of art and living. LOCAL ANGLES: NYC based filmmaker, North Carolina subject, UNC Asheville / western NC native alum filmmaker, civil rights, documentary photography, amazing score, major film festival circuit run.
