Directed by Jonathan Demme | 1992

Demme’s oft-overlooked documentary gem records the filmmaker’s reunion with his long-lost cousin Robert Castle, an impassioned activist and Episcopalian minister in Harlem. With his characteristic generosity of spirit, Demme traces Castle’s unique journey—from an association with the Black Panthers to a political awakening and becoming a crusader for civil rights—as well as their shared family history.
