16mm, color

Tamu begins with the Malcolm X quote, “We don’t see any American dream. We’ve experienced the American nightmare.” In the film, a young African American man drives through South Central thinking about revolution, Malcolm X, racism, capitalism, and war in Vietnam. Midway through, the film switches over to the thoughts of a young African American woman who is thinking about revolution and Angela Davis. Tamu touches on themes of crime, drug use, and revolution.
