Pearl Fryar is a self-taught topiary and junk artist and gardener. He transformed his home's landscape into an incredible garden and has, in turn, transformed his neighborhood and community of Bishopville, South Carolina. Mr. Fryar is energetic and inspiring. He has found his passion and purpose; both that and his garden are wonderful to see. I recommend this film for those with interests in gardening, art and/or documentaries.

"A MAN NAMED PEARL chronicles the story of Pearl' s magical garden as well as his extraordinary life, both of which serve as inspirations to his family, his community, and the thousands of visitors who come to experience Pearl's world each year. The film traces Pearl' s journey from a small town sharecropper's son to an internationally-acclaimed artist, focusing in particular on his position as the celebrated cultural and spiritual icon of his impoverished town. Now 68, the soft-spoken Pearl has just one wish for all those who wander through his living art; they must leave feeling differently than when they arrived." - Editorial Review

One of my favorite documentaries. Check it out!
