"This experimental narrative was an early attempt to deal with the racism of white society. Paul Robeson (appearing with his wife Eslanda) has a nonstereotyped role, one of the few times this happened in his movie career. Shot in Switzerland and set in a Swiss mountain resort, the film examines the effect on several people when a black couple arrives. Light and shadow become metaphors for the racial attitudes of characters. The film is notable not only for its experimental quality but also for its cast. The director, Kenneth MacPherson, was also the editor of the film journal 'Close-up', and as a consequence the film includes the poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle), Bryher (H.D.'s lover and MacPherson's wife), and Robert Herring (MacPherson's lover), all of whom wrote regularly for 'Close-up'". -- [MOMA catalogue]

Kenwin: The Villa Kenwin, built by Hermann Henselmann in 1930-1931, was home to Kenneth Macpherson, filmmaker, and Winifred Ellerman (Bryer) who entertained the poet H.D. (Hilda Doolittle-Aldington) and her daughter Perdita. Built as a modernist utopia, the villa exemplifies the life of a social world. Through tours of the villa and with correspondence between H.D., Bryer, and Macpherson, the past is revisited
