Synopsis

Produced for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Foundation by Ely Landau (The American Film Theater collection), KING is an epic document of the life and work of Martin Luther King, Jr., from the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott to his assassination in 1968. Both a historiography of the non-violent, civil rights movement and a portrait of the movement's inspiring leader, KING is comprised of original footage captured during those turbulent years. "The events are allowed to speak for themselves," wrote The New York Times' Ellen Holly. "The roar of police motorcycles, bombs, burning crosses, ambulances, gospel, shouts, the massed crowds before the Lincoln Memorial at the 1963 March on Washington, and, most thrilling of all, the speeches of the man himself." Without any voice-over narration, KING uses contemporary film/newsreel and video/television footage to brilliantly convey the boiling indignation of an oppressed people and their revolutionary organizing. Juxtaposed over this footage are dramatic readings by actors
