DOWNTOWN INDEPENDENT PRESENTS: “KILLER OF SHEEP” (1977)
May 10, 2018
Los Angeles / Downtown Independent
"Killer of Sheep," whose protagonist is employed at a slaughterhouse, is, according to L.A. Times movie critic Kenneth Turan, a "landmark of both American independent and African American cinema. Charles Burnett's 1977 movie "offers a character-centered portrait of a community rarely seen on film to this day: people of color who are part of the working poor, living from check to check and trying to make ends meet and get ahead."
