Directed by Jamaa Fanaka | 1975

With Marlo Monte, Reatha Grey, Stan Kamber

After suffering at the hands of a racist prison system, an ex-con (Monte) sets out to get his revenge—and you’ll never believe how he does it. Fanaka’s jaw-dropping, blaxploitation-style shocker toys knowingly with cultural anxiety surrounding black male sexuality.

A Day in the Life of Willie Faust, or Death on the Installment Plan
Dir. Jamaa Fanaka, 1972, 20min.
Shot on 8mm, Fanaka’s first film is a raw take on the Faust legend, starring the director himself as a heroin junkie.
