Auckland Film Society is pleased to bring to you with the assistance of Creative New Zealand the Charles Burnett season the first in our series of five films: Killer of Sheep.

"Made while Burnett was a grad student at UCLA, Killer of Sheep is a study of social paralysis in South Central Los Angeles a dozen years after the Watts insurrection; its protagonist Stan works in an abattoir (hence the title) and is depressed, dreamy and always worried-looking. The subject matter harks back to the heyday of Italian neorealism, but Burnett uses the film language of experimental documentaries for his urban pastoral – an episodic series of scenes that are sweet, sardonic, deeply sad and very funny." – J Hobermann

Please note the change of evening from Monday to Tuesday due to Queens Birthday.
