ONCE UPON A TIME WHEN WE WERE COLORED (U.S.A., 9:30 p.m.) The capstone to this year's WorldFest is actor-turned-director Tim Reid's adaptation of Clifton L. Taulbert's acclaimed book about growing up black in the segregated, post-World War II South. Reid has been all over television in recent months touting his movie, and bemoaning the fact that a simple drama about salt-of-the-earth black Americans living their lives doesn't get the attention (or the distribution deals) of a shoot-'em-up in the hood. He has a point, and if we're lucky, he may give us another Sounder or The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman. (Not Reviewed)
