Solomon King (1974) [Kickstarter by Deaf Crocodile Films]


Solomon King (1974) is a 1970s-era Black film that has rarely been seen and was never released on home video. However, the soundtrack to the film was released (a rare find now of days), and it left some folks wondering what the movie was about.

Thanks to Deaf Crocodile Films, we will have the chance to watch this rarely seen Black independent film soon. They have a Kickstarter with great incentives to help get the funding to restore the film and release it on Blu-ray. 

Check out the soundtrack as well. It sounds great!

Storyline
In this uplifting drama based on the memoir "The Water is Wide," Pat Conroy (Jon Voight) accepts a teaching position on an isolated island in South Carolina. There he finds a class of black students who are illiterate and want simple personal hygiene. Conroy contradicts the lax institutional standards and exposes his students to a wide range of topics. Still, those in power do not take kindly to his efforts to overturn their racist policies.
