La Permission  (The Story of a Three-Day Pass)

France  ·  1968  ·  Beta digital  ·  Black and White  ·  83'  ·  o.v. English

The debut feature-length film by Melvin Van Peebles is about the whirlwind romance between a black soldier in the US army and a French woman. Shot in France with a modest budget and in the shadow of the Nouvelle Vague, it is one of the earliest examples of a European feature made by a black director.
