Can a white person realistically make a film about racism that avoids this trap? Well, yes. It’s not just possible; it’s been done. The best example may be the 1964 film “Nothing But a Man.” Directed by Michael Roemer, a Berlin-born Jew who escaped Nazi Germany on a Kindertransport, and shot by Robert M. Young, also a white Jewish man, the film follows a black couple in Alabama.
