Until, Until, Until ... investigates Broadway legend Ben Vereen’s infamous 1981 performance at Ronald Reagan’s inaugural celebration. Intended as an homage to vaudevillian Bert Williams—America’s first mainstream black entertainer—the final five minutes of the performance were censored for the television audience, causing Vereen’s biting commentary on racism and segregation to be lost on viewers at home. Based on the footage that never aired that night, the film raises important questions about truth, history, and collective memory. Until is a commission by Performa.
