Directed by Melvin Van Peebles | 1968

With Harry Baird, Nicole Berger, Christian Marin

Made in France, Melvin Van Peebles’ striking feature debut (based on his own French-language novel) mixes freewheeling Nouvelle Vague stylistics with an incisive look at European and American attitudes towards race. It’s the story of a black US soldier (Baird) who, while on leave in Paris, pursues a fling with a white French woman (Berger)—an exuberant affair that soon bumps up against the realities of racism.
