Directed by Haile Gerima | 1982

With John Anderson, Evelyn A. Blackwell, Norman Blalock

A disillusioned, African-American Vietnam vet (Anderson) travels from Washington to Los Angeles to his grandmother’s farm in search of a better life—but is there a place for him? Ethiopian-American filmmaker (and LA Rebellion movement instigator) Haile Gerima’s Afrocentric survey of the American sociopolitical landscape is a potent mix of documentary realism, dreamlike narrative, and Godardian agit-prop.
