LA Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema

I will never tire of watching or talking about Charles Burnett’s film, “Killer of Sheep,” one of the greatest films ever made. UCLA and The Hammer Museum here in LA did a series called “LA Rebellion: Creating a New Black Cinema,” in 2011, which has now travelled to the Museum of Moving Image in NY starting February 2nd thru 24th. I met Charles Burnett at one of the LA screenings last year and like a giddy school girl groupie had him sign my DVD copy of “Killer of Sheep”. Yes, that happened. All the Golden Globes parties in the world can’t make me star struck the way a living artist like him does. Killer of Sheep screens on Friday February 8th at 7pm, 36-01 35 Avenue, Astoria, 718-777-6888. If you get a chance to see it on the big screen it is so worth it.
