Gordon Parks I knew about, Garrett Scott I didn't. Both of them were filmmakers and both of them left this world during the last few days.
Gordon Parks was a highly acclaimed still photographer & filmmaker. Reportedly the first African-American filmmaker to direct a Hollywood feature. The ever reliable GreenCine Daily has a post w/ several links that lead to stories on Parks.
Garrett Scott was a young documentary filmmaker. I read somewhere that he was inspired to make movies after seeing an insane man steal a tank and wreak havoc in his town. indieWIRE has a tribute to Scott.
Soon I will have to track down at least 1 movie each by both Parks & Scott & watch them in order to celebrate their lives & work.
