The life and work of American author Flannery O’Connor, whose distinctive Southern Gothic spin on Bible-thumping prophets and murderous Misfits influenced a generation of artists and activists, is explored through her own writings and cartoons, archival footage and interviews with those who knew her best.

Winner of the first-ever Library of Congress Lavine / Ken Burns Prize for Film, ​Flannery​ is the lyrical, intimate exploration of the life and work of author Flannery O’Connor, whose distinctive Southern Gothic style influenced a generation of artists and activists. With her family home at Andalusia (the Georgia farm where she grew up and later wrote her best known work) as a backdrop, a picture of the woman behind her sharply aware, starkly redemptive style comes into focus. Including conversations with those who knew her and those inspired by her (​Mary Karr, Tommy Lee Jones, Lucinda Williams, Hilton Als and more​), ​Flannery​ employs never-before-seen archival footage, newly discovered personal letters and her own published words (read by Mary Steenburgen) alongside original animations and music to examine the life and legacy of an American literary icon.


“​Flannery​ is an extraordinary documentary that allows us to follow the creative process of one of our country’s greatest writers.”
—Ken Burns, Documentarian (​The Civil War​, ​Country Music)​
