To Sleep with Anger

Director: Charles Burnett • US

South Central Los Angeles meets Southern magic in this brilliant, surprising domestic drama from acclaimed director Charles Burnett. Danny Glover plays devilish transient Harry Mention, whose sudden appearance at his old friend Gideon’s family home begins a surreal series of events that threaten to unravel the household. Now newly restored, Burnett’s landmark 1990 film remains a trenchant and haunting tale of modern middle-class black life.
