NATIONTIME-GARY
1972, 90 min, USA, Dir: William Greaves

One of America’s most famous and enduring documentary artists, the Harlem-born Greaves is also renowned for his stunning feature film, SYMBIOPSYCHOTAXIPLASM (1968), which was named to the National Film Registry in 2015. He returned to documentary filmmaking with this insider’s look at the 1972 National Black Political Convention, held in Gary, Indiana. With narration by Harry Belafonte and Sidney Poitier, and appearances by Amiri Baraka, Richard Hatcher, Dick Gregory, Jesse Jackson, Coretta Scott King, Bobby Seale and Betty Shabazz (the widow of Malcom X), among others, NATIONTIME - GARY captures a key moment of black solidarity in American history. The film was dramatically shortened for television, and the director’s full-length version was never released - until now.

THE STORY OF A THREE DAY PASS
LA PERMISSION
1968, Xenon Pictures, 87 min, France, Dir: Melvin Van Peebles

Legendary director Melvin Van Peebles delivers a biting indictment of racism in this transgressive love story based on his book, La Permission. THE STORY OF A THREE-DAY PASS follows Turner (Harry Baird), a black U.S. soldier stationed at a military base outside Paris, who is smitten with Miriam (Nicole Berger), a sensitive young woman he meets at a nightclub. A romance ensues, eventually sparking the attention of Turner’s disapproving captain (Hal Brav) and inviting angry insults from others.


Special Ticket Price: $15 General. No vouchers. | Screening format: DCP. Restorations by IndieCollect with funding from the HFPA and Jane Fonda.
