For those of you who missed it the last time, you're luck. Here's another chance to see 'Nothing But A Man' on the big screen in Chicago. Don't blow it this time. Like Haley's Comet it comes around only once a century.

Nothing But A Man

Back in Dec. 2012, The Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago presented a limited engagement of a newly-restored Library of Congress print of Michael Roemer's seminal 1964 film, Nothing But a Man.

Unfortunately, several people missed that screening and lamented that there was only this one chance to see it, and it had slipped them by. 

Well for those people, and for those who simply want to see it again, you're in luck.

The film will be returning to the Siskel Film Center next month on Friday Feb. 14th and Tuesday Feb. 18th starting on both dates at 6PM.

The screenings are part of the Film Center's upcoming series The American New Wave - starting in Feb through early May - of American made independent films made during the 60's and 70's which were groundbreaking in terms of their subject matter and their approach as well.

Later in this spring, The Film Center will screen Shirley Clarke's Portrait of Jason and Larry Clark's Passing Through as part of the series.

As I've said before about Nothing But A Man, if you claim you're serious about black cinema, then you have no excuse to miss it. It's a simple, yet beautiful and powerful film of raw honesty and emotion.

Believe it or not, there was time, years ago, when it was actually shown regularly on TV, especially on local PBS stations, but the film has been out of circulation for at least more than a decade and a half.

But to see it again on the big screen in a restored print, is a rare joy. So if you're in the Chicago area, you can't afford to miss it. This may be your last chance.

Here's a short clip from the film:
