May 3—Post-screening Q&A with Charles Burnett

 
To Sleep with Anger

Dir. Charles Burnett
1990, 102min, DCP
With Danny Glover, Paul Butler, DeVaughn Nixon

 

Charles Burnett’s beguiling, poetic realist fable charts the fissures that form within a Los Angeles family when they receive a surprise visit from an old Southern acquaintance (a mesmerizing Danny Glover), who turns out to be the houseguest from hell—perhaps literally. Interweaving strains of black folklore, surrealism, and macabre comedy, Burnett fashions a masterpiece of idiosyncratic genius.

 
When It Rains

Dir. Charles Burnett
1995, 13min, 35mm

 

In Burnett’s jazz-inflected reflection on music, black identity, and community, a trumpeter spends New Years Day helping a friend raise money to pay her rent and keep her from being evicted.
