Over the last year and a half, The Gordon Parks Foundation has been working in partnership with Kunhardt Films to produce a feature documentary film about the life, work, and legacy of Gordon Parks. A Choice of Weapons : Inspired by Gordon Parks will have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York City on Friday, June 18th, 2021.
Executive produced by Alicia Keys and Kasseem “Swizz Beatz” Dean, A Choice of Weapons: Inspired by Gordon Parks explores the power of images in advancing racial, economic, and social equality as seen through the lens of Gordon Parks, one of America’s most trailblazing artists, and the generation of young photographers, filmmakers, and activists he inspired. Many of the voices featured in the film include past fellows, award recipients, and collaborators of the Gordon Parks Foundation, including LaToya Ruby Frazier, Spike Lee, Ava DuVernay, Jamel Shabazz, Devin Allen, Bryan Stevenson, Anderson Cooper, Darren Walker, and many more.
Screening and Q&A Information:
Friday, June 18 @ 5:00PM EST | Brookfield Place New York
A Choice of Weapons : Inspired by Gordon Parks will be broadcasted later this year on HBO and HBO Max.
