James Baldwin tells his own story in this emotional portrait. Using rarely seen archival footage from nine different countries, JAMES BALDWIN: THE PRICE OF THE TICKET melds intimate interviews and eloquent public speeches with cinéma vérité glimpses of Baldwin and original scenes from his extraordinary funeral service in December 1987. His close friends and colleagues — and even critics — illuminate the narrative, among them writers Maya Angelou, Amiri Baraka and William Styron, plus entertainer Bobby Short. Karen Thorsen's documentary captures the passionate intellect and courageous writing of a man who was born Black, impoverished, gay and gifted. DIR/SCR/PROD Karen Thorsen; SCR Douglas K. Dempsey; PROD William Miles. U.S., 1989, b&w/color, 87 min. NOT RATED
