Part of BAMcinématek
Directed by Bill Gunn | 1973

With With Duane Jones, Marlene Clark, Bill Gunn

Sex, religion, and vampirism collide in Bill Gunn’s long-neglected masterpiece and visionary mash-up of horror and avant-garde delirium. Night of the Living Dead star Duane Jones plays a doctor who, upon being stabbed by his assistant (Gunn) with an ancient African dagger, develops an insatiable thirst for blood—and soon welcomes a strong-willed woman (Marlene Clark) into his vampiric fold. Mis-marketed as a blaxploitation shocker during its brief release run, Ganja & Hess, presented at BAM in a newly restored director’s cut, is in fact a heady exploration of African-American cultural identity, Christianity, and white supremacy.
