Black Natchez (1967)
documentaries can be risky, as Ed Pincus,
one of the leading local pioneers in the field, learned in the 1970s when a
contact helping him with his 1967 documentary Black Natchez threatened his life, forcing him and his family into
seclusion. That ill-fated film will open the Harvard Film Archive retrospective
of his work, "Ed Pincus, Lost and Found,"
which will run through April 9. Co-directed with David Neuman, Natchez is a raw, vérité
look at turmoil and sacrifice during a voter registration drive in Mississippi in 1965.
Pincus and Neuman will attend the screening. The Archive is in the Carpenter Center, 24 Quincy St, Cambridge
