Chameleon Street

December 7, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

New 4K Restoration

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 actor-writer-director Wendell B. Harris Jr., the film pins a lens on race, class and performance in American identity, which has lost none of its relevance.

(Wendell B. Harris Jr., USA, English, 94 min, 1990, Digital)
