THE STORY OF A THREE DAY PASS
MELVIN VAN PEEBLES | FRANCE, USA | 1967 | 86 MIN | NR | FRENCH, ENGLISH
As an expat in France, Van Peebles flourished in the much less segregated arts culture. He not only produced a number of books and plays, but created his first film: a poignant and romantic tale of an African American soldier on leave caught up in a whirlwind romance with a white French woman.
Cast: Harry Baird, Nicole Berger
Part of the Philadelphia Film Society’s Van Peebles – American Baadasssss series.
The cigar-chomping iconoclast that kickstarted a cinematic revolution is revisited through his art-house debut, transgressive studio hit, and one earth-shattering, wild indie classic. Plus a bonus screening of his own son’s biopic surrounding the creation of SWEET SWEETBACK’S BAADASSSSS SONG.
