CANE RIVER is a racially-charged love story in Natchitoches Parish, a free community of color in Louisiana. A budding, forbidden romance lays bare the tensions between two black communities, both descended from slaves but of disparate opportunity the light-skinned, property-owning Creoles and the darker-skinned, more disenfranchised families of the area.

- This 1982 feature film is being screened at the first--ever Smithsonian African American Film Festival hosted by National Museum of African American History in October 2018. It took a year to restore the film. The director Horace Jenkins was an Emmy-award winning documentary filmmaker, and "Cane River" was his first feature-length narrative film. But just months after the film premiered in New Orleans, the forty-two-year-old director died of a heart attack and "Cane River" never received a distribution.
