Killer of Sheep

USA  ·  1978  ·  35 mm  ·  Black and White  ·  80'  ·  o.v. English

This film was sui generis when it appeared as a student film. A towering masterpiece which channels a certain urban naturalism and lyricism. Made in Los Angeles with the participation of Burnett’s community as a cross-section of black middle class life on the verge of a new era.


Restored to 35 mm by UCLA Film & Television Archive. Also screened in DCP 2K version.
