Overview

Cane River (1982)

Louisiana Made!
Presented by Films at Manship, River Road African American Museum, and West Baton Rouge Museum
Featuring a pre show reception and post show Q&A with the film's actors Richard Romain and Tommye Myrick!

Available now for the first time in forty years in a brand-new, state-of-the-art 4k restoration. This lyrical, visionary film disappeared for decades after filmmaker Horace Jenkins died suddenly following the film’s completion, robbing generations of a talented, vibrant new voice in African American cinema. Written, produced, and directed by Emmy Award-winning documentarian, Horace B. Jenkins, and crafted by an entirely African American cast and crew, CANE RIVER is a racially-charged love story in Natchitoches Parish, a “free community of color” in Louisiana. A budding, forbidden romance lays bare the tensions between two black communities, both descended from slaves but of disparate opportunity—the light-skinned, property-owning Creoles and the darker-skinned, more disenfranchised families of the area.

Director: Horace Jenkins    
Writer: Horace Jenkins    
Starring: Tommye Myrick, Richard Romain, Carol Sutton
