Film Screening: Dorothea Lange, Grab a Hunk of Lig...

Presented by Crocker Art Museum at Crocker Art Museum

The Crocker is proud to again present Dorothea Lange: Grab A Hunk of Lightning, which tells the story of the passion, vision, and drive that made Lange one of the most important photographers of the 20th century. While Lange’s haunting image The Migrant Mother is one of the most recognized photographs in the world, few know the full range of her work or the suffering that drew her to the people she photographed. Grab A Hunk of Lightning is narrated and directed by Lange’s granddaughter, filmmaker Dyanna Taylor, and brings the wide lens of Dorothea’s work into full view. This screening is presented in collaboration with California Humanities, the grant-making nonprofit that helped fund this film through its California Documentary Project, and will be introduced by the Project’s manager, John Lightfoot.
