New 4K Restoration
Gerima’s first documentary delves into the case of ten men and women―nine Black and one white, almost all high school students―who were wrongfully convicted in 1971 in North Carolina for arson of a white-owned business. In his own words, Gerima’s film, “Explores human beings rather than facts. It goes beyond the case of the Wilmington 10 and shows people struggling to seek justice." A stirring, kaleidoscopic work, Wilmington 10 – USA 10,000 remains all too prescient. (Haile Gerima, USA, 1979, 120 min.)
