Screenings: Clarence (2015)

January 3rd, 2018 · No Comments


As inspiring as his educational aspirations are, the most eye-opening moment of this doc comes during a 2007 mentoring session where the questions asked of him by the young people are themed around their socially-prevalent concepts of “gang,” “pistol” and “jail.” Mr. Garrett, being at least 65 years their senior, has no experience (outside of his years of military service) with any of them, and the implication of that is alarming. But Clarence is a true “force of nature,” and to see him, at 86 years of age, fight to strum a guitar, complete a standardized test, and stay awake during a lecture is humbling, if not completely sympathetic.
