Film Screening & Discussion: Made in Harlem – The Lafargue Clinic Remixed: Native Son

Directed by Pierre Chenal, 1951,180 min.

Curated by Kazembe Balagun

One of the most controversial novels of its day, Richard Wright’s NATIVE SON, (first published in 1940) exposed the injustices of urban African-American life, witnessed through the eyes of Bigger Thomas, whose moral confusion was the result of historic social exclusion and economic deprivation. In prison for murder and sentenced to death, Thomas reflects on the circumstances that led to his fate.

A complete 16mm print of the original Argentinian release and an incomplete 35mm duplicate negative of the uncensored cut were combined for the current restoration, the most complete version of Native Son ever shown in the United States.
