NOTHING BUT A MAN
Directed by Michael Roemer
USA, 1964, English, 95 minutes 

Though little-seen at the time of its release, the independently produced Nothing But a Man has been hailed as one of the 1960s' finest, most compelling dramatizations of what it meant to be black in the South in an area as yet untouched by the gains of the Civil Rights era.  Directed by by white documentarian Michael Roemer and co-written by Roemer and Robert Young (later famous as the director of Alambrista and Short Eyes), Nothing But a Man stars Ivan Dixon (most famously of the 1960s pow sitcom Hogan's Heroes) as Duff, a southern railroad section worker and his romance with a local preacher's daughter, here played by jazz legend Abbey Lincoln. 

Body and Soul is part of the Plaza Theatre Foundation's Black History Month Film Series. Each film will be introduced by film historian Matthew H Bernstein. For a full series line-up, and other series information, click here

BODY and SOUL (1925): Black History Month Screening

The Plaza Theatre Foundation proudly presents its Black History Month Film Series, in partnership with the Atlanta Film Society! Beginning on February 16th with a DCP projection of Body and Soul (1925) (102 min).

BODY & SOUL
Directed by Oscar Micheaux
USA, 1925, English, 102 minutes 

Black film pioneer Oscar Micheaux's controversial 12th film features a powerful debut screen performance by the multi-talented Paul Robeson in a dual role as an upright but poor inventor and his brother, an utterly corruptsmall-town Georgia preacher who preys upon the unquestioning faith of his congregation.  Featuring footage shot in Atlanta and recently restored by Kino-Lorber with a new musical score by T.J. Spooky, Body and Soul is a potent example of the black-themed films featuring all-black casts made by and for black audiences (termed "race films") in the silent era.

Body and Soul is part of the Plaza Theatre Foundation's Black History Month Film Series. Each film will be introduced by film historian Matthew H Bernstein. For a full series line-up, and other series information, click here

In this contemporary American adaptation of the 1978 outrageous French farce La Cage Aux Folles, the story centers on the life of a middle-aged, flamboyant gay couple...Armand and Albert...in the eclectic community of South Beach, Florida, who have raised a straight son. The son announces his engagement to the daughter of a right-wing U.S. senator, and wants to bring his fiancee and her ultraconservative parents home to meet his family for the first time. What choice is there but to accept his decision with love! So Armand and Albert must pretend to be very straight by attempting to play out the roles of your typical heterosexual "husband" and "wife"! Easier said than done...
