BURBANK, CA, February 18, 2013 (Press-News.org) A man born into slavery changed the world with the peanut.
PEANUT MAN, the award winning documentary short film, is being released this month on DVD to celebrate Black History Month. A 3 minute short documentary film about the life of innovative scientist and inventor George Washington Carver, PEANUT MAN tells the story of a simple man who was born into slavery and became a scientist, teacher, inventor and innovator to the world with what was considered the lowliest of plants.
"Carver was a man in history who showed that anyone can accomplish anything", Director Jack Truman stated in press materials. "This is a man who was born a slave in the Ozarks in the 1800's, who became the first black man to get a college degree, the first black man to teach college, and the first black man to be honored by Congress. I grew up in Southwest Missouri, 30 miles from his birthplace. His story has been in my hometown backyard for years waiting to be told. This is a very personal film for me as a filmmaker. This simple man became a consultant to historical figures such as Henry Ford, Einstein and Stalin. Here is a man who has earned his place in history. His story needs to be told."
The award-winning short film premiered last fall at the Imagine Science Film Festival in Brookln, and has screened at film festivals across the country. Last month, PEANUT MAN screened at the Kidz Film Festival in New Jersey. Now releasing on DVD to celebrate Black History Month, PEANUT MAN will now be available to educational institutions and private viewers around the world.
Dixie Films is an independent film company from the real-life Mother/Son filmmaking team of Jack Truman and Opal Dockery. Truman and Dockery's films have screened at over 300 film festivals worldwide to date.
