The Bus Is Coming Details


[[Performer~P65884~Mike Simms~mikesims]] plays a young black soldier serving in Vietnam, who is abruptly summoned back to his old Watts neighborhood. [[Performer~P65884~Simms~mikesims]]' family is mourning the death of [[Performer~P65884~Simms~mikesims]]' brother, who was killed by two racist cops. Encouraged by a white friend to investigate his brother's death, [[Performer~P65884~Simms~mikesims]] finds himself in the unenviable position of being the voice of moderation between the black militants preparing to ravage the neighborhood and the white extremists who are poised to take retaliatory action. Filmed by an African-American crew, The Bus Is Coming endeavors to be evenhanded in showing the evils of racism from both ends of the spectrum. The amateurishness of the actors merely serves to enhance the realism of the project. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
