Ashes and Embers


In this criminally underseen masterwork by Hailie Gerima, Ned, a Vietnam veteran, returns home hoping to cash in on the promise of the Black American dream post-Civil Rights. Through experimental techniques, Gerima makes commentary on the post-war disillusionment Black veterans feel and the transformative power of community to do what is otherwise impossible.
