About the Movie

“Life’s Essentials with Ruby Dee”, a documentary about love, art and activism, tells the story of one of the most enduring couples of our times, Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis. Their achievements in love (with a 57-year marriage), art (as pioneers in black theater) and activism (always using their influence to help "the people") parallel nearly a century of change in America. The film is told through the lens of their grandson, director Muta’Ali, who has an innate hunger to learn everything possible about his grandparents’ lives and apply their hard-won lessons to his own life today. Through pointed questions, revealing conversations and never-before-seen family archival material, “Life’s Essentials with Ruby Dee” shares the wisdom of the ages with today’s generation, carrying the legacy of Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis forward in history for the first time in feature documentary form.
