Meeting the Man: James Baldwin in Paris
Terence Dixon, UK/France, 1971, digital projection, 31m
An extremely rare film document photographed by Jack Hazan (Rude Boy, A Bigger Splash) in several symbolic locations, including the Place de la Bastille. As Hazan recounts: “Things don’t go to plan for him and the film crew when a couple of young black Vietnam draft dodgers impose themselves on the American. Baldwin wrestles with being a role model to the black youths, denouncing Western colonialism and crimes against African Americans while at the same time demonstrating his mastery and understanding of the culture he supposedly despises.”

Special thanks to Jake Perlin and Rich Blint, who programmed The Devil Finds Work - James Baldwin On Film series at Lincoln Center in 2016.
