Watch the Trailer for A Man Named Pearl

A Man Named Pearl is an uplifting documentary that introduces us to Pearl Fryar, a self-taught topiary artist who creates an award-winning garden for his community to enjoy.

Sometimes you need a little reminder to slow down and see the beauty that surrounds you. "A Man Named Pearl" is a documentary that tells the story of Pearl Fryar and the special garden he has created to serve as a spiritual place for people from all walks of life to "go and feel love" and reflect.

Fryar is a sharecropper's son, who, with passion and determination, has risen to prominence as an internationally acclaimed topiary artist. In the poorest county in South Carolina, Pearl has single-handedly created an amazing 3-1/2 acre garden from throwaway plants. In the process he has brought hope and racial reconciliation to his hometown. With decades' worth of stunning, lush topiaries, his garden is now a tourist destination as a place for spiritual reflection and connection, and he's an uplifting icon in his community.

Check out the trailer above and tune into "Super Soul Sunday" this Sunday from 8-11 a.m. ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network for the full version.
