Why hasn't this movie been shown over the past years?
I am surprised that this movie hasn't been seen for years. I first saw it on American PBS during the early 1980's, and I have not seen or heard of it since. It is a poignant love story and touches on several historical themes that were not greatly discussed in mainstream circles. They include interracial/inter-cultural marriage, the position of women of African descent in Western civilization, and the ties that bind people of dissimilar backgrounds within the context of a racist society, to name a few. It's hard to believe that there are so few comments about this film, for though it is fictional (I assume), it deals with an aspect of history known to few. I'd like to obtain a copy of it for my own collection.
