Winner of the first-ever Library of Congress / Lavine / Ken Burns Prize for Film, Flannery is the lyrical, intimate exploration of the life and work of author Flannery O’Connor, whose distinctive Southern Gothic style influenced a generation of artists and activists. With her family home at Andalusia (the Georgia farm where she grew up and later wrote her best known work) as a backdrop, a picture of the woman behind her sharply aware, starkly redemptive style comes into focus. Including conversations with those who knew her and those inspired by her (Mary Karr, Tommy Lee Jones, Hilton Als and more), Flannery employs never-before-seen archival footage, newly discovered personal letters and her own published words (read by Mary Steenburgen) alongside original animations and music to examine the life and legacy of an American literary icon.

USA, 2019, 97 minutes, Not Rated, Directed by Mark Bosco and Elizabeth Coffman

  • "FLANNERY is an extraordinary documentary that allows us to follow the creative process of one of our country’s greatest writers."

    — Ken Burns, Oscar-nominated Documentarian
  • "An example of documentary filmmaking excellence... a rich and complete portrait of the author. A VITAL WATCH"

    —Tallahassee Democrat
  • "For those who’ve read O’Connor and those who haven’t alike, it’s a strong entry point."

  • "A true joy to behold. WONDERFUL! “Flannery” has left me hungry to consume the writing of this troubled, joyous writer."

    —The Film Yap
  • "Certainly worth our attention"

  • "A treat for fans of O’Connor. Much like a Flannery O’Connor short story. The documentary places its subject...among the great Catholic writers O’Connor was...one of literature’s miracles."
