Afro Prairie Film Festival: Cane River

Wed, Feb 19 / 9 pm
Directed by Horace Jenkins
1982, USA, 90 min
4K Restoration

Cane River is set near Natchitoches, in one of the first ‘free communities of color’. Richard Romain plays Peter Metoyer, home to fight for his land, and Tommye Myrick plays the headstrong Maria Mathis, reluctant to succumb to his charms just because he’s the scion of a famous family. Together they confront schisms of class and color that threaten to keep them apart and that still roil America today.
