Return of Blacklight: “Ashes and Embers”


Haile Gerima (Bush Mama) returned to the big screen with this dreamlike exploration of a black Vietnam veteran’s attempts to re-enter everyday life. John Anderson plays Ned Charles, who wanders ghostly streets looking for direction but finds police brutality and disillusionment. Ashes and Embers played at the very first Blacklight Film Festival in 1982. Festival founder and programmer Floyd Webb will introduce the film.
