A Man Named Pearl < PREVIOUS MOVIE | NEXT MOVIE >

USA 2006 • Documentary • 77 minutes
Directed by Scott Galloway, Brent Pierson

“A Man Named Pearl” tells the inspiring story of self-tought topiary artist Pearl Fryar. He purchases trees that won’t grow in the local nursery. Pearl begins cutting every bush and tree in his yard into unusual abstract shapes. These live trees become beautiful pieces of art. He didn’t know it then, but he was creating a magical wonderland that would, in time, not only garner local recognition, but also draws thousands of visitors from the USA and around the world. He is a highly skilled artist who brings joy and beauty to his community. As Pearl’s minister says of the garden: “It’s the one place in South Carolina that people can go, both black and white, and feel love.”
