Veteran editor, producer, and director Sam Pollard is among cinema’s most dedicated chroniclers of the Black experience in America, moving freely across film and long-form television as well as narrative and documentary for the past four decades.
To celebrate the release of the virtuosic documentary MLK/FBI, our friends at Film at Lincoln Center are presenting a tribute to the Emmy Award-winning and Oscar-nominated director and producer Sam Pollard, to be available nationwide via the FLC Virtual Cinema.
This retrospective will feature some of his critically acclaimed films, such as Two Trains Runnin’, praised by The New York Times as “a convergence of idealism, brutality, and artistic genius”, and Maynard, described by The Hollywood Reporter as “Insightful and illuminating.”
We are pleased to offer our community a special 20% discount for film rentals to help make these as accessible as possible.
