Hmmmm
4 October 2003 | by (Somerville MA) – See all my reviews

An interesting piece of documentary history into the work of Haile Gerima. The film is very rough but has its moments. The actors were believable but the story line seemed forced and a tad didactic. This should be judged as a piece of history and not a artistic effort.
