The Portland Black Film Festival presents a 35mm print of this Jamaa Fanaka classic!
(1979) Jamaa Fanaka uncompromising masterpiece about prison life! A
hitchhiker named Martel Gordone (Leon Isaac Kennedy) gets in a fight
with two bikers, and one of the bikers is killed. Gordone is arrested
and sent to prison, where he joins the prison's boxing team in an effort
to secure an early parole and to establish his dominance over the
prison's toughest gang. This is one of the most powerful films to come
out of the "L.A. Rebellion" film movement!
