[he Crocker is proud to present four fresh documentaries that share some of the diverse stories and compelling individuals who make up our state. Each screening will be introduced by John Lightfoot of California Humanities, the grant-making nonprofit that helped fund these films through its California Documentary Project. A Q&A with the filmmakers or subjects will follow some screenings.
Presented in honor of Photography Month Sacramento, Grab A Hunk of Lightning tells the story of the passion, vision, and drive that made Dorothea 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
