Southern Culture Movie Series: The Quiltmakers of Gee’s Bend

This Emmy-winning, high-definition film documents a group of internationally-acclaimed African-American quiltmakers from Gee’s Bend, Alabama. Their compositions have been hailed by Michael Kimmelman of The New York Times as “some of the most miraculous works of modern art America has produced.” The Quiltmakers of Gee’s Bend explores the extraordinary lives, inspirations, and history of these artists, and also follows them on a touching bus journey to see their quilts exhibited at The Milwaukee Art Museum.
