When Pearl Fryar and his wife sought to buy a house in an all-white neighborhood of Bishopville, SC, they were dissuaded with the explanation that Black people don t keep up their yards. Remarkably, instead of fueling bitterness and anger, this comment motivated Pearl to win Bishopville s Yard of the Month award and, eventually, to transform his ordinary suburban yard into a horticultural wonderland. The topiary garden s centerpiece emblazons both its message and Pearl s own philosophy: Love, Peace, and Goodwill.
A MAN NAMED PEARL chronicles the story of Pearl s magical garden as well as his extraordinary life, both of which serve as inspirations to his family, his community, and the thousands of visitors who come to experience Pearl s world each year. The film traces Pearl s journey from a small town sharecropper s son to an internationally-acclaimed artist, focusing in particular on his position as the celebrated cultural and spiritual icon of his impoverished town. Now 68, the soft-spoken Pearl has just one wish for all those who wander through his living art; they must leave feeling differently than when they arrived.
Stirring and profoundly uplifting, A MAN NAMED PEARL offers a captivating window into the life a man who turned obstacles into breathtakingly beautiful possibilities.
