Charles Burnett is an eminent figure of the Black independence movement. His dual identity, as African American and independent filmmaker, makes his work rare and valuable, revealing the shortcomings of American society. A subtle and powerful storyteller, he describes the lives and dreams of African American families, mixing culture and politics in his own unique way. 

This portrait of Charles Burnett, which follows him in his hometown neighborhood Watts, in Los Angeles, tells the story of fifty years of American history scarred by the fight for civil rights. It shows how precious his work is for the young generations, as it still resonates today.
