The Maysles Cinema, located at 343 Lenox Ave in New York, will be screening director Vivian Ducat's award winning documenatry ALL ME: The life and Times of Winfred Rembert on Jan.11 2012.

The film, which won the Silver Plaque for Best Documenatry at this year's Chicago International Film Festival in October, chronicles the hard scabble and amazing life and work of outsider artist Winfred rembert and details "his intensely autobiographical paintings depicting the day-to-day existence of African Americans in the segregated South, Winfred Rembert has preserved an important, if often disturbing, chapter of American history. His indelible images of toiling in the cotton fields, singing in church, dancing in juke joints, or working on a chain gang are especially powerful, not just because he lived every moment, but because he experienced so much of the injustice and bigotry they show as recently as the 1960s and 70s."

Furthermore in the film the artist "relives his turbulent life, abundantly visualized by his extensive paintings and, in a series of intimate reminiscences, shows us how even the most painful memories can be transformed into something meaningful and beautiful. A glowing portrait of how an artist and his art is made, ALL ME is also a triumphant saga of race in contemporary America"

The reception and screening at the Maysles Cinema will begin at 6:30PM and both Ducat and Rembert will be present for a Q and A after the screening. For more info about the film and to see clips from the film go HERE.
