Went to see this film today at the BFI, part of their "Black and Banned" season. The film did not get a release due to what was considered "subversive" at the time. Great Q&A afterwards with stars Judy Geeson, Esther Anderson and director Ted Kotcheff on Skype from LA. Incidentally, writer Evan Jones is still alive.
