  • Killer of Sheep

    1977. USA. Written, directed, produced, photographed, and edited by Charles Burnett. With Henry Gayle Sanders, Kaycee Moore, Charles Bracy, Eugene Cherry. Burnett’s first feature is a harsh Neorealist portrait of Los Angeles ghetto life, vitalized by the kind of humanism that the director valued in the films of Jean Renoir. Hampered by his inability to secure music rights, Burnett finally saw the film go into general release 30 years after its completion. 80 min.
