Nothing But a Man
Shown as part of the Portland Black Film Festival. Nothing But a Man was first released in 1964 to great critical acclaim, and although it was not an immediate huge commerical success, in recent decades it has gained new popularity with general audiences and historians. The movie has a fasticating backstory as one of the first American feature films produced primarily with a black cast but for a white moviegoing audience. The storyline follows a young black couple and their challenges with racism and unemployment in the American South of the 1960s. In 1993, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
