This rarely seen one-hour interview with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was conducted in King's Atlanta home in December 1965 by producer Arnold Michaelis. The footage was shot by North Haven-based cinematographer George Silano (the only living member of the original film crew) who will introduce the film. King's sentiments on the Civil Rights Movement, the Vietnam War, as well an interview with his wife Coretta, are all included in this remarkable portrait. Curious about the film's whereabouts nearly five decades later, Silano tracked it down at the University of Georgia where Arnold Michaelis' substantial media archive ended up after his death in 1997. Free admission to film. Co-presented with the African American Museum of the East End.
