Winner of the first-ever Library of Congress Lavine/Ken Burns Prize for Film, Flannery explores the life and legacy of American literary icon Flannery O’Connor, whose distinctive Southern Gothic fiction influenced a generation of artists and activists. Set against the backdrop of the Georgia farm where she grew up and later wrote her best-known work, the film employs never-before-seen archival footage, newly discovered personal letters, the author’s work (read by Mary Steenburgen), and interviews with Mary Karr, Tommy Lee Jones, Hilton Als, and more.
