Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth + Q&A

British filmmaker Pratibha Parmar visits the BFI London Lesbian & Gay Film Festival to present extracts from Alice Walker: Beauty in Truth, a documentary about the life and art of the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer. Parmar argues the case for Walker as an American icon, discusses the very emotional experience of working with her on the earlier documentary Warrior Marks, and considers the challenges of making a film which might do justice to Walker's incredible story.
