Event Description

A black railroad worker in Alabama's marriage to the town's preacher's daughter disintegrates as it becomes increasingly harder to live in the Jim Crow south in this 1964 film by Michael Roomer. The Washington Post has called it "one of the most sensitive films about black life ever made in this country." It won the San Giorgio Prize at the 1964 Venice Film Festival - an award given to films considered especially important for the progress of civilization. It was added to the National Film Registry in 1993 for its cultural and historical significance. Panel: TBD.
