Thornton Dial

The 20 minute documentary, Thornton Dial, examines the extraordinary life and work of this 77-year-old contemporary artist from Bessemer, Alabama. Born in Emelle — in the heart of the Black Belt—Dial is a former migrant farmer and steel worker who neither reads nor writes, and has never formally trained as an artist. Yet art critics call him genius.
