If you missed it in theaters this summer, the award-winning documentary film “A Man Named Pearl” is now available on DVD. And when you buy the film, you receive a bonus CD containing Fred Story’s original score, including bonus cuts and the trailer score.
The film tells the inspiring story of self-taught topiary artist Pearl Fryar. Among the many glowing reviews, The New York Times said, “Assembled without frills or fuss, ‘A Man Named Pearl’ is as much a portrait of a small Southern town as of an unassuming black folk artist. Aided by Fred Story’s jazzy score, the directors, Scott Galloway and Brent Pierson, keep things moving with appreciative comments from the financial and spiritual beneficiaries of Mr. Fryar’s talents…”
The Los Angeles Times added, “Inspired yet? Wait till you see the winning documentary “A Man Named Pearl,” which not only makes you want to get out there and play Edward Scissorhands but can, at least for its 78 jazz-and-gospel infused minutes, help replenish one’s faith in humanity.”
Featured in Fred’s score are performances by jazz artists Phil Thompson on tenor sax, Jon Thornton on trumpet and Al Sergel on drums.
Don’t miss “A Man Named Pearl”. It’ll give you a new perspective on what one person can accomplish by simply pursuing their passion.
