Summary An African American soldier stationed in Europe encounters racism from his superiors following his idyllic 3-day affair with a young French woman. Directed by Melvin Van Peebles, THE STORY OF A THREE DAY PASS is the first major film by a black director to be released in the U.S. Winner of Best Film at the **San Francisco International Film Festival**. *"A kind of gentle cross between 'Hiroshima Mon Amour' and 'Guess Who's Coming to Dinner'-a little hard to imagine, it is true, but less pretentious than the first and less false than the second." - Renata Adler, **The New York Times***
