Northwest Film Forum Capitol Hill
Wed Feb 13, 7 pm & Feb 15–16
Per Charles Mudede: "Here are two things that cannot be contested: The greatest film made by a black American is Charles Burnett’s To Sleep with Anger, and the greatest film made by a black African is Djibril Diop Mambéty’s Hyenas. [...] [To Sleep with Anger] is unknown, and was completely ignored by the Oscars, because it's an intelligent film about black people, and yet has almost nothing to say or to do with white racism." After the Friday screening of this masterpiece, stay on for a talk by Mudede.
