Dir. William Greaves | 80min, 1972

The late William Greaves, best known for his experimental 1968 meta-documentary Symbiopsychotaxiplasm, turned his lens in 1972 to the National Black Political Convention held in Gary, Indiana, a historic event that gathered black voices from across the political spectrum, including Jesse Jackson, Dick Gregory, Coretta Scott King, Richard Hatcher, Amiri Baraka, Charles Diggs, and H. Carl McCall. Narrated by Sidney Poitier, Nationtime was considered too militant for television broadcast at the time and has since circulated only in an edited 58-minute version.

In this brand new 4K restoration from IndieCollect, with funding from Jane Fonda and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, Greaves’ long-lost film is returned to its original 80-minute length and visual quality.
