Killer of Sheep

Celebrate Black Film
(NR) USA – 1 hr 20 min
1978 · d. Charles Burnett   Official Site Reviews
Starring Henry G. Sanders, Kaycee Moore, Angela Burnett, Jack Drummond

Slaughterhouse worker Stan (Henry G. Sanders) and his wife (Kaycee Moore) struggle to stay afloat in L.A.'s downtrodden Watts district while maintaining their dignity and love. With lyricism approaching visual poetry, director Charles Burnett captures the struggles—and moments of transcendence—in a life with limited prospects. Made on a shoestring budget, Killer of Sheep would eventually be among the first fifty films preserved in the Library of Congress's National Film Registry. 

Shown in conjunction with a Cinema Classics Seminar, Killer of Sheep will be introduced by its instructor, Andrew Owen, Ph.D.
