Grab A Hunk of Lightning
is a 110-minute film narrated and directed by Dorothea Lange’s granddaughter, award-winning filmmaker Dyanna Taylor.
Explore, through her
granddaughter’s eyes, the life story of Dorothea Lange, the photographer who captured
the iconic image “Migrant Mother.” Never-seen-before photos, film footage,
interviews, family memories, and journals reveal the artist who challenged
America to know itself.
Lange’s enduring images document five turbulent decades of American
history, including the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, World War II
Japanese American Internment camps, and early environmentalism.
“This film is generous
where it counts most — hundreds of those photos, not a single one wasted here
….“BOTTOM LINE, Beautifully done…this is a long love letter.” - Newsday
