Vidiots welcomes groundbreaking filmmaker Charles Burnett for a special screening of his mystical dark comedy masterpiece To Sleep With Anger. Interweaving family, folklore, superstition, tradition, and modernism – Burnett’s smoldering and poetic film remains a brilliant and vital piece of filmmaking. Danny Glover (fresh off two Lethal Weapons) plays Harry – a southern drifter who visits his old friend in South Central Los Angeles and begins to turn everyone’s world towards chaos.

Conversation with filmmaker Charles Burnett and composer Stephen Taylor before the screening.

Presented in collaboration with Occidental College’s Media Arts and Culture Department.

Doors open at 6:00 pm. Grab a drink with us at the bar!
