Few have left as indelible a mark on cinema as actor, producer, political activist, and UN Goodwill Ambassador Danny Glover. Whether teaming up with key Hollywood directors (Steven Spielberg, Jonathan Demme, Robert Benton, Lawrence Kasdan, and others) or starring in one of the great American independent films of the 1990s (Charles Burnett’s To Sleep with Anger, centered on his unforgettable performance), Glover has captivated and enthralled audiences with his endlessly evocative screen acting. But he has also established himself as an important champion of world cinema’s leading auteurs through the production company, Louverture Films, that he founded with Joslyn Barnes in 2005. Among Louverture’s wide-ranging credits are lauded and beloved works by such contemporary masters as Abderrahmane Sissako, Lucrecia Martel, and Apichatpong Weerasethakul. Glover, one of cinema’s most tireless and courageous activists, will be recognized with the Motion Picture Academy’s Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in January 2022.

Organized by Dennis Lim and Dan Sullivan.
