Description: In The Foreigner’s Home, her 2006 exhibition at the Louvre, Toni Morrison holds a series of conversations that develop from asking, “Who is the foreigner?” By way of footage and interviews, this documentary provides viewers with a provocative meditation on the question, its implications for race, identity, immigration, and “foreignness,” Morrison’s artistic and intellectual vision, and the possibilities of art’s redemptive power.
