Directed by Shirley Clarke | 1967
“A masterwork of grand-scale intimacy."
—Richard Brody, The New Yorker

In one of the simplest and most radical documentaries ever made, raconteur, hustler, singer, and man about town Jason Holliday holds court in front of Shirley Clarke’s camera for nearly two hours. In a mix of confession, fabrication, plea for pity, and act of defiance, Jason describes the inner and outer life of a gay black drifter making his way through mid-century America.
