Set against the stirrings of the civil rights movement and a rising wave of burgeoning black pride, NOTHING BUT A MAN, tells the story of a railroad section hand, who is forced to confront racial prejudice and self-denial when he falls in love with an educated preacher’s daughter. Presented in a recently restored 35mm print by the Library of Congress and Cinema Conservancy, ARRAY Releasing's screening of this 1964 work of art will serve as the springboard for open exchange about economic and social equality as well as the pursuit of selfhood in spite of both. A post-screening discussion will follow.
The 3rd film in our bi-monthly film + dialogue series in partnership with The Broad and REDCAT curated by ARRAY founder + filmmaker Ava DuVernay. Ticket are available HERE.
