The 2018 Levine Lecture, part of the Storytellers series of events created by UNC Charlotte’s Center for the Study of the New South, will focus in part on how documentarian Rory Karpf crafted a nuanced portrait of the outlandish professional wrestling legend and long-time Charlottean, Ric Flair. Karpf’s talk will address the challenge of capturing Flair’s questionable lifestyle decisions and treatment of women without condoning these choices, resulting in a documentary described as “incredible,” “captivating,” and “triumphant.”
