Explore the life and work of author Flannery O’Connor, whose distinctive Southern Gothic style influenced a generation of artists and activists. With the Georgia farm of Andalusia as a backdrop, O'Connor's starkly, redemptive experiences—found in both her personal biography and her best-known works—come into focus. Winner of the first-ever Library of Congress Lavine/Ken Burns Prize for Film, Flannery includes conversations with Mary Karr, Tommy Lee Jones, Hilton Als, and others. Watch never-before-seen archival footage, read newly discovered personal letters and hear her own published words alongside original animations and music to examine the life and legacy of an American literary icon.
