Directed by Gordon Parks | 1969

With Kyle Johnson, Alex Clarke, Estelle Evans

The first film first made by an African-American director for a major Hollywood studio, this semi-autobiographical coming-of-age drama from photojournalist-director Gordon Parks (Shaft) follows the rocky path towards self-determination of a strong-willed teenage boy (Johnson) growing up in 1920s Kansas. Parks’ nuanced direction and photographer’s eye yields a complex look at race relations in the pre-Civil Rights-era South imbued with striking visual beauty.
