Maya Angelou:And Still I Rise is the first documentary about Dr. Maya Angelou. As friends from Dr. Angelou's inner circle, we have been granted remarkable and unmatched access to Dr. Angelou's life. After years of working on this film, we are honored to present her incredible journey to the rest of the world.
Dr. Angelou has become a global symbol of peace, humility, and freedom -- -- but parts of her story are not well known. The Maya Angelou Documentary will reflect on how the events of history, culture, and the arts shaped Dr. Angelou's life and how she, in turn, helped shape our own worldview through her autobiographical literature and activism. We hope to shed light on the untold aspects of her life and to educate audiences about her story.
