Directed by Michael Roemer | 1963
“One of the great American independent films”
—Amy Taubin, Artforum

“Baby I feel so free inside.” Shot during the tumultuous summer of 1963—the summer of Medgar Evers’ assassination, George Wallace at the University of Alabama, and the March on Washington—Nothing But a Man follows working man Duff Anderson whose growing radicalism threatens his relationships with those closest to him. According to film historian Donald Bogle, “No other American film has yet treated a black male/female relationship with as much sensitivity. Watching Dixon and Lincoln come to terms with one another and their own lives, we realize, more than ever, how much of the black experience has been ignored or evaded by the American commercial film.” Features a powerful performance by jazz legend Abbey Lincoln.
