A souvenir of the British avant-garde, circa 1929, with Paul Robeson as one of two black wanderers who purge a central European village of its suspicion and prejudice. The director, Kenneth Macpherson, was the editor of the film journal Close Up, and made the film in support of his magazine's position that sound had no place in the cinema (which proves that the avant-garde was as reactionary then as it is now).
