Product Description:

Director Gordon Parks' introspective, autobiographical film details life for a black youth in Kansas during the 1920s, as he learns about love, violence, and loss.

Plot Synopsis:

Gordon Parks' adaptation of his autobiographical novel. The story centers on Newt, a sensitive and intelligent 15-year-old boy living in the South during the 1920s. An African-American with high aspirations in an age when segregation ruled, Newt's experiences with racism, sex, love, and loss help him develop into a mature individual. In contrast, Newt's friend Marcus is a sullen youth who seems to think only with his fists, and whose life is headed nowhere. But Newt's morality is severely tested when the wrong man is arrested for a murder that Newt witnessed. If Newt discloses the true killer's identity, it could affect both his and Marcus' lives forever.


Production Notes:

  • THE LEARNING TREE was an original selection to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1989.
  • Gordon Parks's first feature film.
  • A Winger Enterprises production.
