(PG) USA – 1 hr 36 min
1973 · d. Oscar Williams
Starring Clarice Taylor, D'Urville Martin, Glynn Turman, Bonnie Banfield, Leonard Jackson
A deliberate departure from ’70s “blaxploitation” films, this big-hearted dramedy touches on feminism, the Black Power movement, African heritage, and more. Over the weekend of her daughter’s wedding, long-suffering Gladys Ann is moved to confront her domineering husband.
Join us for a post-screening conversation with Vincent Williams and Len Webb of the local film podcast The Micheaux Mission!
