OXY CINEMATHEQUE presents Charles Burnett TONIGHT!!!

Just a reminder that Charles Burnett, director of "Killer of Sheep", will be speaking tonight in Johnson 200 at 7pm as part of the Oxy Cinematheque series. His presentation will be on "Politics and Aesthetics of Filmmaking Outside of Hollywood."

Cinémathèque is the term coined by French fans of films who would gather to watch older films back before such films were available on VHS or DVD.  Oxy’s Film & Media Studies Program in AHVA has run a cinémathèque series for many years; this year the screenings have been selected by Seniors majoring in Film & Media Studies, who will also introduce each screening and give a brief discussion of how the film or television episode fits into their Senior Comps project.  This is an excellent opportunity to see some great screenings.
