Dir. Marlon Riggs. 1991. 87 mins.

In just 87 minutes, Marlon Riggs’ compilation essay documentary Color Adjustment summarizes 40 years of African-American representation on television. Spanning the most sordid stereotypes, tone-deaf attempts at correcting them, and radical breaks from TV clichés, the film illuminates the psychology of American race relations and offers a pointed critique of the desire for TV shows to do the impossible: represent the spectrum of African-American experience.

Runtime appr. 90 mins.
