Arbelos Films presents CHAMELEON STREET 345; "One of the greatest independent films of the twentieth century." - The New Yorker

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 1990 Sundance Film Festival, yet criminally underseen for over three decades, CHAMELEON STREET recounts the improbable but true story of Michigan con man William Douglas Street Jr., the titular "chameleon" who successfully impersonated his way up the socioeconomic ladder by posing as a magazine reporter, an Ivy League student, a respected surgeon, and a corporate lawyer. Elevated by a dexterous performance and daring direction from multi-hyphenate actor-writer-director Wendell B. Harris Jr., the film pins a lens on race, class and performance in American identity which has lost none of its relevance. At once piercingly funny and aesthetically mischievous, CHAMELEON STREET is a lost masterpiece finally securing its rightful place in the independent film canon.
