The Intruder
(The Intruder)

by Roger CORMAN

The Intruder 5

Although the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education ruling marked the end of racial segregation in the schools of southern United States, various forms of resistance to its implementation persisted for many years. Roger Corman decided move to a small southern town to shoot a film based on real-life events, despite the risk of rousing the residents’ hostility. Here, there is no black problem, but a determination to address head-on – as had never been done before in American cinema – the expression of white racism and its populist arguments. The filmmaker continued to view this racism, which used oratorical manipulation of the ignorant masses as its fighting force, as the country’s main issue. A subtle and relentless demonstration. JB
