The Orpheum Theatre-Memphis says
Part of the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers

Explore, through her granddaughter’s eyes, the life story of Dorothea Lange, the photographer who captured the iconic “Migrant Mother.” Never-seen-before photos, film footage, interviews, family memories and journals reveal the artist who challenged America to know itself. Lange’s enduring images document five turbulent decades of American history, including the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, World War II Japanese Internment camps, and early environmentalism. Yet few know the story, struggles, and profound body of work of the woman behind the camera.

90 minutes, followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker

Dorothea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning is presented as part of the Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers with support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
