Dorothea Lange: Grab A Hunk of Lightning

More than six decades of 20th-century America are seen through the prism of Dorothea Lange's life and lens. Known for her powerful images from the Great Depression, Lange's haunting 'Migrant Mother' remains emblematic of that period. As young America matured into a world power, Lange continued to bear witness, bringing subjects alive, transmitting raw emotions and capturing the human condition. This film is made by Dyanna Taylor, Lange's granddaughter, who began her artistic vision, literally, at Lange's feet. TVPG
