Nov. 5, Free Screening of cult classic, The Spook Who Sat By The Door, by Sam Greenlee.
Followed by discussion on the Ballet Box as the weapon of choice & citizen's responsibility to STAND UP & VOTE. From venue can jump on streetcar & go Vote! Brought to you by Black Folks Make Movies.
41 prints were made by the filmmaker prior to the film's release in '73. Within 3 weeks of it's release 40 prints & negatives of The Spook Who Sat By The Door were confiscated by the FBI & subsequently destroyed. Due to director Ivan Dixon's foresight 1 negative was stored under a different name thus saved for future use. Needless to say this cult classic is rarely seen.
You gotta Fight the Power. Fight the Power. Fight the Power That Be! YOUR VOICE COUNTS NOW MORE THAN EVER! STAND UP & VOTE!!!
