In this seminal work, an African American GI stationed in France confronts the dangers of cavorting with a white woman while on a short leave. Blaxploitation meets the French New Wave in Melvin Van Peebles’s legendary political allegory—one of the most remarkable lost films of the 1960s. Projected by the Secret Cinema, using an archival 16mm print (with surprise short subjects preceding the feature).
