Unedited raw takes from Williams' unfinished feature film are slated to be shown at "Mostly Lost" in June. I've seen the footage twice, and it's amazing stuff; MoMA's print is struck off the camera neg. Very little is known about the film; it was produced by Biograph when it was on its last legs, and features an all-African-American cast.
