Directed by Jules Dassin | 1968

With Raymond St. Jacques, Ruby Dee, Julian Mayfield

Intro by film theorist and author Michael B. Gillespie

Jules Dassin’s hard-hitting, unjustly overlooked political thriller charts tensions within a group of black activists who, in the aftermath of Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination, begin militarizing—only to find themselves betrayed by one of their own. A remarkably uncompromising declaration of Black Power from a major studio, Uptight stands as a vivid record of an era when black resistance was evolving from nonviolence to revolution.
