About this product
- DescriptionNew Mexico, 1985. Brigid Long Night, a young half-Navajo painter goes to work as an assistant for the elderly Georgia O'Keeffe. Haunted by the decision to give up her newborn daughter for adoption, Brigid struggles with the direction and inertia of her life. With O'Keeffe's encouragement, Brigid develops a powerful style, incorporating language and wordplay as well as image in her portrayal of Native American life and her place in it. Atlanta, 1995. Nancy Diamond, an aspiring playwright, sees Brigid's work and begins to understand the hidden truths about her own life as the child born of an affair between her white mother and an African American artist. New York City, 2001. Sasha Hernandez enrolls at Columbia University to study filmmaking. She has only recently discovered that her mother, living in Manhattan, is a celebrated painter and sculptor, whose work is installed in the sculpture garden at the World Trade Center. In Liza Wieland's deeply moving vel, three interwoven stories show the myriad ways these ordinary women become extraordinary as they betray and heal, love and let go, and bear witness to the everyday beauty and loss that surrounds them.
