Dir. William Greaves. USA, 1973, 79 mins. Best known for his 1971 classic Symbiopsychotaxiplasm: Take One, William Greaves was also the director of over 100 documentary films, the majority of them focused on Black history, politics, and culture. Nationtime is a report on the National Black Political Convention held in Gary, Indiana, in 1972, a historic event that gathered Black voices from across the political spectrum, among them Jesse Jackson, Dick Gregory, Coretta Scott King, Richard Hatcher, and Amiri Baraka. Narrated by Sidney Poitier and Harry Belafonte, the film was considered too militant for television broadcast at the time. This new 4K restoration from IndieCollect, with funding from Jane Fonda and the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, returns the film to its original 79-minute length and visual quality. A Kino Lorber release. View trailer.
