The Learning Tree

No upcoming showtimes scheduled.
Director: Gordon Parks
2023 / 107min / DCP

“Based on Parks’s autobiographical novel of the same name, The Learning Tree marked the first time an African American directed a film in the Hollywood studio system. Gorgeously photographed, Parks’s lyrical and fatalistic Depression-era drama tells the story two teenagers in rural Kansas, torn apart by the circumstances of their imperiled community.”—Brandon Harris
