One of the rare independent films created by an all African American cast and crew in the early 1980s, Cane Riverwas also the first and, sadly, the only drama by documentarian Horace B. Jenkins, who died at the age of 42 just a few months after the film debuted. Set in one of Louisiana’s first “free communities of color,” the film follows the courtship of a young couple (he’s Creole, she’s black) as they confront the barriers of heritage, religion, and family opinion.
