I Heard it Through the Grapevine

New 4K Restoration Theatrical Re-Release!

“In “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” Baldwin fulfills the retrospective view of his life that its early sequences promise, in ways that go far beyond the anecdotal.”
- The New Yorker

"Baldwin rises to the task Sterling left him, listening to and taking part in radical, angry, and funny conversations with people whose voices may not have otherwise entered the record.”
- ScreenSlate

“I Heard It Through the Grapevine makes the political personal at every turn.”
- Slant Magazine

SYNOPSIS: James Baldwin retraces his time in the South during the Civil Rights Movement, reflecting with his trademark brilliance and insight on the passage of more than two decades.
