Dir. Haile Gerima, Digital video B/W Sound 00:14:00
A young African American male rethinks his role as a basketball player for white spectators as he begins reading the works of Third World theoreticians like Frantz Fanon, and contemplates the work of Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and Angela Davis. Highly metaphoric rather than realistic, Haile Gerima’s PROJECT ONE (an early student film project at UCLA) visualizes through montage the process of coming to Black consciousness.
