Retrospettiva: Black Light

Killer of Sheep

USA  ·  1978  ·  DCP  ·  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.


Also screened in 35 mm.
