This is the first feature documentary about the incomparable Dr. Maya Angelou, best known for her autobiography I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (Random House). Distinctly referred to as “a redwood tree, with deep roots in American culture,” icon Maya Angelou gave people the freedom to think about their history in a way they never had before. Dr. Angelou’s was a prolific life; as a singer, dancer, activist, poet, and writer she inspired generations with lyrical modern African-American thought that pushed boundaries. World Premiere: 2016 Sundance Film Festival other fests include Full Frame, Sheffield, Boulder Film Fest, and Riverrun It won the Audience Award at AFI Docs.
Working with Jon Reiss and Hybrid Cinema was an amazing experience. I learned so much working with them. It has changed my entire thought process about film distribution. Director Bob Hercules, A Good Man, Maya Angelou, and Still I Rise
