Summary
(Pressure) Hailed as Britain's first black feature film, PRESSURE is a hard-hitting, honest document of the plight of disenchanted British-born black youths. Set in 1970s London, it tells the story of Tony, a bright school-leaver, son of West Indian immigrants, who finds himself torn between his parents' church-going conformity and his brother's Black Power militancy.--Container [120 minutes](Baldwin's nigger) In this documentary James Baldwin and Dick Gregory talk about the black experience in America and relate it with that of the Caribbean and Great Britain today--Opening credits [44 minutes]
