Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
This title provides a revealing and engaging collection of interviews spanning the entire career of one of America's finest, yet least known directors. Charles Burnett is a groundbreaking African-American filmmaker considered by critics to be one of America's finest directors, yet he remains largely unknown. His films, most notably "Killer of Sheep" (1977) and "To Sleep with Anger" (1990), are considered classics, yet few filmgoers have seen or heard of Burnett. The best qualities of Burnett's films - rich characterizations, morally and emotionally complex narratives, and intricately observed tales of African-American life - are precisely the things that make his films a tough sell in the mass marketplace. The interviews collected in this volume explore this paradox and collectively shed light on the work of a rare film master whose stories bring to the screen the texture and poetry of life in the black community.
