The story of Native Son deals with a number of issues: racial segregation, censorship, theatre, the New Deal, American and Argentine cinema. But it also includes characters as dissimilar as Richard Wright, Orson Welles,
Pierre Chenal, a former Bolivian president and Narciso Ibáñez Menta. The story of its recovery and restoration is also captivating, and includes efforts by Argentine and American people. Edgardo Krebs’ book organizes all the scattered material on this essential film and becomes a read as fascinating as the film itself.
