The Real Louisa May Alcott

Production of a 60-minute documentary film that explores the life and work of Louisa May Alcott (1832-88).

LOUISA MAY ALCOTT will be a 60 minute documentary for PBS which will explore the life, work, and times of the renowned author of LITTLE WOMEN, one of the most popular and enduring novels in literature. The dimensions of Alcott's outsize personality, wide-ranging literary accomplishments, and eventful life have been revealed by scholars only over the past fifty years. The true story of Alcott is full of new information, startling discoveries, and contemporary significance. Using archival material, historic locations, feature film clips, interviews, recreations and dramatizations, the documentary will build a complex and compelling portrait of this daring, independent woman who was an observer, exemplar and chronicler of her times.
