Chameleon Street
(Wendell B. Harris Jr., 1990, 94 min, USA, Color, DCP)

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 1990 Sundance Film Festival — yet criminally underseen for over three decades — Chameleon Street recounts the improbable but true story of Michigan con man Douglas Street, the titular “chameleon” who successfully impersonated his way up the socioeconomic ladder by posing as a magazine reporter, an Ivy League student, a respected surgeon, and a corporate lawyer. Elevated by a dexterous performance and daring direction from multi-hyphenate actor-writer-director Wendell B. Harris Jr., the film pins a lens on race, class and performance in American identity — and has lost none of its relevance. New 4K restoration.

 

Screen/Society screenings are free and open to the public. (COVID-19 Info)
