Wendell B. Harris Jr.’s brilliant acid comedy—which won the 1990 Sundance Grand Jury Prize—explores the link between Black alienation and role playing via the story of a shape-shifting con artist.

This daring, warped, and brilliant acid comedy—which won the 1990 Sundance Grand Jury Prize—tells the caustically hilarious, stylistically audacious true story of Douglas Street, a con artist who successfully impersonated a Time magazine reporter, a Yale student, and a surgeon. With a grab bag of Brechtian narrative tricks, writer-director-star Wendell B. Harris Jr. teases out the relationship between Black alienation and role playing.

The 4K restoration was completed from the original camera negative and sound materials by Arbelos and supervised by Wendell B. Harris Jr.
