This entirely African American-conceived and produced ensemble drama is the result of a collaboration of a pair of pioneering Black artists: writer ISHMAEL REED and filmmaker BILL GUNN, who wrote and directed the underground classic Ganja & Hess and wrote the screenplay for HAL ASHBY's The Landlord. Originally intended to air on public television in 1980, it went unseen for many years; the original tapes have been carefully restored by Kino Lorber and the film is now available in its full-length version for the first time in decades!- Kino Lorber
