Rembert's Amazing Grace

Earning accolades at film festivals from Chicago to Atlanta, All Me: The Life and Times of Winfred Rembert offers a compelling look at a fascinating black artist, whose larger-than-life personality peeks through his elaborate autobiographical paintings depicting a segregated American South. Rembert, who is in his 60s, appears in the film discussing the harsh civil rights-era environment that inspired his work.

All Me has been screened across the country and has garnered recognition among film organizations, including being named an official selection at 2012 Pan African Film Festival. You can watch All Me: The Life and Times of Winfred Rembert on Xfinity and Verizon FiOS Video on demand.

And if you're in the Los Angeles area, be sure to catch the movie's screening at the Pan African Film Festival on Sunday, Feb. 19. For more information about the screening, and to buy tickets, visit the Pan African Film Festival's website. For more information on future All Me screenings, visit the film's Web site.
