Native Son

Pierre Chenal, 1951, Argentina
Richard Wright adapts and stars in this film version of his watershed novel about a poor African-American man on trial for murder. Too controversial for Hollywood, Native Son was filmed in Buenos Aires, where Wright was living as an exile due to his leftist ideologies, and for years was circulated in heavily censored versions.
