"This is just a little bit from the sound truck full beloved, which is based on the book, but Tony Morrison, and we hill to talk about if film that is being shown in the Wisconsin film festival titled Tony Morrison, the pieces that I guess is Timothy greenfield Sanders. He is an American documentary filmmaker portrait photographer based in New York. He has produced directed thirteen films, including Lou Reed, rock and roll heart which won a Grammy in nineteen ninety nine the black list, which which received the end ACP spirit award in two thousand eight Toni Morrison the pieces I mirrored at the Sundance film festival in January will be screening as I said that there was constant field. First of all this tomorrow, April six eleven AM Shannon hole, which is in the memorial union. An Hello Timothy's. Thank you very much. Joining us today there. How are you? I am. Well, thank you. So in watching the film, I then defied Zillow recurring themes, which I think a interesting and relevant to today. Just as much as they will at the time. I suppose one of them is the Poel of words, which Tony Morrison says she discovered aged three both hit on. Interviewees poke quite a bit about it throughout the film talk about that about that theme of the poll of words. The film really starts with toys realization when she's a three year old girl seen which I don't wanna spoil for right? See that she described writing on the sidewalk, and I'll leave it. But essentially, it it this experience lets her understand the bigger picture, which is that were to power. And you know, it's it was when Tony said that in the interview, we just instantly new there's there's the perfect start for the film because it really gives you a sense of her journey. Yeah. And then people later, the the other people that doing to friends of hers activists people whose books she published. Critics talk about the power of her words, so yeah, discussed the if you will. I think it's it's not only the power of her words because of course. Those are monumental words. When you think about this the career of Tony Morrison, but Tony the editor. Yes. Also of person she worked at Random House. She brought to the world all kinds of books that probably wouldn't have gotten published. So I think she understood the power of the words of others as well. And and really one of her missions. I think was to bring work to light that wouldn't have been saying twenty twenty. Edge. Davis is biography. She published of the to lead the greatest book, you know, she she got all kinds of things published. She was really the premier African American editor at Random House. Yeah. And I think that is a part of life that is less known among the general public and the people. So so let's talk a little bit about that part of life. How was it? She became a major publisher in Random House. We go into this in the film. And I'm I'm again has to tell you know, too much about the the. Yeah. To see it. But you know, I think if you if you look at her life, I think it all starts with reading, and it starts with her love of books, which were really her focus in high school for focus even going to college was to she said to go to a place where she could read, and I think this. Was really something that continued and continued to a point where she realized she could probably be an editor. Or there was maybe work she could support her. So I don't think she really ever thought she'd make money as a writer. She thought perhaps teaching would be something she could do. And and that also touches on what jobs were available to black women in that period as well. And so she she went to Howard University. She got a degree there. She then when toward its southern Texas southern and then came back toward it Howard. Meanwhile, was quietly writing, you know, very very early in the morning before children were awake. Yeah. I think the theme of of. Writing and and books and the importance of. The word the written word is is is there from from the very beginning. Yeah. And one of the other interviewees says later in the films that she's writing scorched earth, and he says how he he loves reading. But you wouldn't want to live that life. Tony Morrison writes about an indeed I mean, I didn't read all will. But I did read three of them and. It's Walter Mosely who says that who is more of a writer himself. And he says he you know, if he could live a life. It's more of us moment the film, I'll give it away. But he's the live his life. Kind of sitting by the Bank of the river fishing. Maybe mermaid comes. But but to be a character in a twenty Moore's novel, though, that's not a life. He wants. He said, I'll read it. But I won't live in. Yeah. And indeed, I mean, at least the books that I've read of hers very much about pain and terrible things happening to people. But also about people finding ways to to not just live through them. But but to really transmute the the terror that the lives of into something much bigger into becoming strong and powerful. And again, one of the points that you that people talk about including himself in the film is women that before hill. Yeah. People have ridden before hill boats Lavery in about the live lives of being black. But really, she's the first one. That talked abo- remain in these situations and their roles. Yes, it is sort of central character. Really? I think that the narrative around slavery was always as twenty seven the film. What was about men black men escaping? Not escaping living dying. But it was never about women. And I think in beloved that's that was her intention, certainly. Yeah. And it's it's interesting. The so beloved, for example, is based on on an actual his story historical event. But she just read about it. She and I think in the film. It's Russell banks who's a writer himself and talks about how Tony had read. This little piece about Margaret Gardner and the incident that happened and she didn't want to research it any further. She just wanted to use it as a jumping off point for her own writing into a magin that life, and what could have happened in what did happen. And that's that's the the genius of of Tony Morrison. Is that ability to do that? Yeah. And then another point that kind of keeps repeating in the film is. I'm trying to find the right word to talk about the way critiques have responded, the phonetically too early work. And then also later I mean to to to tell you the truth the way put it in my notes is the stupidity of of course, not really not all critics not all the time. But. Well, it's it is what I've always thought amazing is how Tony was able to kind of brush it off. Because if any of us was criticized the way, she's been criticized in her life. It's it's very hard to take, you know. And she here she is writing a book. Let's just take the bluest her first book and the New York Times review talks about how it's very good. But you know, really should start addressing white people. I mean, it's just it's just mind blowing that someone would write that. But that was you know, back then in the seventies. And that was a take on it. And. Tony continued writing and ignored it. But imag- imagine writing something brilliant is that book, and that that's a that's a New York Times review reaction to it. You know, an even later when she wins, the Nobel there is there's a wonderful scene in the film about how mostly men were putting down and saying she didn't deserve it that she wasn't really that good writer, and this was a politically, correct. Saying by the Nobel committee just is just horrible things that were said at this moment when we should been celebrating the fact that here's the first. You know, African American woman to ever win the Nobel prize and. Yeah. Making these nasty remarks. So I don't know if you would know that necessarily Timothy, but has any of these critics of going back on the words has any of them ever reason? I I didn't understand Tony Morrison when I was younger. The three that were that we that we quote in the film one of them surly hazard. I mentioned his name because I don't want to give them any more credit. But the the marvellous thing is that twenty years after beloved was published. It was I think in the New York Times called it probably the most important book of the oh, God, what was the the most important book of the last fifty years or something and how it had proven to be that? Because it's now taught in schools, and it's a textbook kind of the way of Faulkner Melville, author and twain or taught and now Morrison's beloved is part of that legacy. And that's the real kind of the answer to your question is that. Yes, it, you know. I can't swear word, but. Thank you. Those critics who attacked her, you know, she she really want out. I think now her work is beloved. Yeah. And again, I don't know if you know the answer to that. But in universities is an in high school stew is she taught in, you know, in in of American studies, also in English literature. Studies. Timothy, I think we lost him with the. Well, let's let's call him back. And maybe listen to a little more of the that soundtrack fool beloved if we can..
