NOTHING BUT A MAN (1964)
Directed by Michael Roemer and Robert Young
Nothing but a man follows Duff Anderson and his love interest Josie Dawson struggling to survive in mid-1960's Alabama, a time when segregation was no longer legal but still widespread. Any black person who refused to submit to racism would soon be labeled a troublemaker. The movie is an allegory for the systemic inequality that has long plagued America and in many ways still does.
This movie isn't exploitative nor sensationalized, as many movies nowadays are. It is simply an incredible document of how black communities lived every day from a street- level perspective.
At a time when America was in the middle of the civil rights upheaval, two Jewish students (Michael Roemer and Robert Young) decided to head south and make a film about the real situation about black people in Alabama. One of them had grown up in Germany and had experienced the Nazi attacks against his people, so the persecution of blacks in America was something he could recognize. Nothing but a man was the result of their effort, and it remains one of the most unique and astounding films in the history of American cinema.
“The most important film about what it means to be black in America” – Malcolm X
