MELVIN & JEAN, AN AMERICAN STORY - PART OF AFRICAN-AMERICANS IN PARIS PROGRAM
SATURDAY OCTOBER 19 @ 8PM - AFRICAN-AMERICANS IN PARIS PROGRAM

MELVIN & JEAN, AN AMERICAN STORY
Melvin and Jean McNair hijacked a plane from Detroit to Algeria in 1972 with their two babies on board, they called it an act of political resistance. The hijacking was also an act of desperation committed by two people in their early twenties who saw no other way to escape what they felt was the constant state of racial oppression in America. Living in Paris forty years after the hijacking and unable to return to the U.S., Melvin and Jean are still coming to terms with their crime and its lifelong consequences. Q&A with the director after the screening.
Maia Wechsler, USA/France, 2012, 59mins, documentary  in English and French with English subtitles.
