The Story of a Three Day Pass

1968, 87 minutes, Not Rated


Note: in English and French with English subtitles.


France, mid 1960’s.  During a three day leave a Black American soldier (Harry Baird) meets a white Frenchwoman (Nicole Berger) and a serious romance develops.  But when the soldier’s superior officer finds out about the interracial relationship, turmoil ensues.  The first feature length film by writer/director Melvin Van Peebles is a bold, dazzling experience, influenced by French cinematic styles (New Wave) and American social complexities.  It is considered by many to be one of the great movies of that era.


FYI: Ironically, the recent restoration of Van Peebles’ film was funded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association—currently in the news for some supercharged diversity issues.
