Directed by Wendell B. Harris Jr. | 1989

With Harris Jr., Angela Leslie, Amina Fakir

This daring, warped, and brilliant acid comedy—which won the 1990 Sundance Grand Jury Prize—tells the caustically hilarious, stylistically audacious true story of Douglas Street, a con artist who successfully impersonated a Time magazine reporter, a Yale student, and a surgeon. With a grab bag of Brechtian narrative tricks, writer-director-star Wendell B. Harris Jr. teases out the relationship between black alienation and role-playing.

B-Roll With Andre
Dir. James N. Kienitz Wilkins, 2015
A playful yet menacing meditation on identity that riffs ingeniously on true-crime documentary clichés.
