Docs in Bloom: A Man Named Pearl

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Docs in Bloom: This spring, revel in the wonders of nature and meet the creative visionaries who make it blossom. 

“I am a man named Pearl and this is my garden.” Meet Pearl Fryar, an unbelievably talented topiary artist whose magical work is all the more impressive because he taught himself. Follow Pearl's unlikely journey from a small-town sharecropper's son and factory worker to an international gardening star as he transforms his small, impoverished town of Bishopville, South Carolina into a horticultural wonderland. Profoundly inspiring, A Man Named Pearl offers a captivating window into the life of a man who turned obstacles into breathtakingly beautiful possibilities.
