Oprah Winfrey hails from Kosciusko, Mississippi, but most pilgrims trek there to visit The Unusual Artist Ms. L.V. Hull at her outlandish home. Now, as L.V.’s health fails, one final visitor would make her life complete: Blues legend B.B. King. Will The Artist meet The King before time runs out?
A NOTE FOR YOU
You may know or suspect that you possess a unique gift, but, like many of us, you may not always have the courage to unwrap it and share it with the world. This is true whether you are male or female, but beautifully unconventional women often fight the fiercest battles to live as themselves. Despite being dismissed as a “crazy lady”, Ms. L.V. unapologetically dedicated her life to loving herself, sharing her art, and vanquishing naysayers (or at least not letting them get on her nerves). We hope that our affectionate home movie portrait of her spiritual triumph will inspire you to let your light shine. And once you see the film, we think you’ll agree:
You can’t spell LOVE without L.V.
