synopsis
Chronicles the journey of Winfred Rembert, an African American artist who recently had a retrospective in a top-tier Madison Avenue gallery who earlier in his life had served seven years on a chain gang in Georgia. His brightly colored paintings which are executed on leather canvases which Rembert also tools, a technique he learned in prison, describe life in the Jim Crow south in the 1950's and 60's. A native of Georgia, Rembert, now lives with his wife and eight children in a rough neighborhood in New Haven but also operates in the social universe of well-off white collectors in Connecticut who buy his work. The film traces his life and contextualizes the era it describes.
