All sections »
Adopting the style of cinema-verité the documentary follows the organisation and actual event of Martin Luther King’s march on Washington in 1968 called “The Poor People’s Campaign.” As King was assassinated a few days after fi lming, it is an exceptional document of King’s last weeks of life. It was conceived as part of the Public Broadcasting Laboratory (PBL) of the PBS—the US public broadcasting service—to experiment with new forms of observation and interpretations of reality through television.

Directors’ Statement
We began fi lming on 15 January 1968 in Atlanta: it was the beginning of the march and also the day on which Martin Luther King turned 39, his last birthday. We documented the events that revolved around his dream of occupying Washington with thousands of marginalized people: blacks, Appalachian whites, American Indians and Mexican immigrants.
