James Baldwin was one of the most important voices to document the civil rights movement in the USA. This film was made with unprecedented access to his original work Whilst it is partly anchored in the struggle for equality in 50s and 60s America it is also about what it means to be black in America today.

“An incendiary snapshot of James Baldwin’s crucial
observations on American race relations — and a sobering
reminder of how far we’ve yet to go” – Rotten Tomatoes
