2013 Brown Harris Stevens Audience Award Winner All Me: The Life & Times of Winfred Rembert by flimmaker Vivian Ducat
Jacqui Lofaro, executive director of the sixth annual Hamptons Take 2 Documentary Film Festival which ran December 6,7,8 at Bay Street Theatre in Sag Harbor, announced that the winner of the 2013 Brown Harris Stevens Audience Award was the film All Me: The Life & Times of Winfred Rembert. The 74-minute film, which screened to a full house on Saturday afternoon, December 7, was directed by Vivian Ducat, co-produced by Vivian Ducat and Mark Urman, edited by Michael Culyba, and filmed by David Gaynes.
This poignant film chronicles the journey of Winfred Rembert, an African American artist, who earlier in his life served seven years on a chain gang in Georgia where he learned how to tool on leather canvases. His intimate reminiscences depict the injustice of life in the Jim Crow south. Now in his sixties, Rembert has developed a following among collectors and more recently had a retospective of his art at a prestigious Madison Avenue gallery.
