Film: Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World

October 6 | 7:00 pm
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

In collaboration with Cinema Savannah, Telfair presents the new film by acclaimed director Werner Herzog, Lo and Behold: Reveries of the Connected World. Herzog’s new documentary focuses on the internet, perhaps the most world-changing technological development since World War II. In this film, the Oscar-nominated director chronicles the virtual world from its origins to its outermost reaches, exploring the digital landscape with the same curiosity and imagination that he previously trained on earthly destinations as disparate as the Amazon, the Sahara, the South Pole, and the Australian outback. Herzog leads viewers on a journey through a series of provocative conversations that reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in reality works—from business, to healthcare, to our personal relationships.

Talent and Beauty: A 19th Century African American Story

October 22 | 2:00 pm
Jepson Center,
207 W York St
Savannah, 31401 United States

This program explores the story of an enslaved African American woman named Annie Crawford (1832–1902) and her daughter Elizabeth (1872–1948), who established herself as a successful dressmaker serving both black and white clientele. Kathleen Curtis Wilson—Fellow, The Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, and author of a soon-to-be-published book on this subject—will discuss Elizabeth’s journey from a slave cabin she shared with 10 family members to a two-story home of her own and a thriving business. Perlista Henry, great-granddaughter of the dressmaker, will present two quilts, one silk and one cotton, that were pieced by Elizabeth and remain in her family. Late 19th-century textiles with African American provenance are rare, and examples that remain in the family of origin even more exceptional. Presented in association with Telfair’s Friends of African American Arts. Prior to this presentation, at 12:30pm, FOT members may tour Historic Cottons to Modern Polyesters in the Telfair Academy with exhibit curator, Cyndi Sommers.
