Starz InBlack Pays Tribute To Director Gordon Parks

Starz InBlack pays tribute to internationally acclaimed filmmaker, photojournalist, novelist and composer Gordon Parks, with a special presentation of its original production “UNSTOPPABLE: A Conversation with Melvin Van Peebles, Gordon Parks and Ossie Davis.” The documentary airs this Friday, March 10th at 6:50 p.m. (et/pt).

“UNSTOPPABLE: A Conversation with Melvin Van Peebles, Gordon Parks and Ossie Davis” provides a candid and revealing look at the first African Americans to direct Hollywood features — Melvin Van Peebles (“Sweet Sweetbacks’ Baadasssss Song,” “Classified X”), Gordon Parks (“The Learning Tree,” “Shaft”) and Ossie Davis (“Cotton Comes to Harlem”). Van Peebles, Parks and Davis discuss a myriad of issues surrounding their distinguished careers, including their struggles and triumphs.

“Gordon Parks was one of the 20th-century’s most prolific and diverse artists,” said Stephan Shelanski, senior vice president of acquisitions for Starz Entertainment Group. “He was a legend and a preeminent figure in American culture and we our deeply saddened by his death. We are grateful for the opportunity to have worked with him to record his thoughts and memories about his career.”
