Black Film Weekend screenings celebrate the cinematic storytelling traditions of the African diaspora in conjunction with the exhibition Afrocosmologies: American Reflections.
The life of a middle-class family in Los Angeles is disrupted by the arrival of an old friend—played by Danny Glover—from back South. Initially a charming reminder of their past, the visitor soon overstays his welcome and becomes increasingly sinister as the strained household tries to cope.
1990. US. 102 min. Rated PG. Directed by Charles Burnett. Starring Danny Glover, Paul Butler, DeVaughn Nixon.
$10; $9 seniors and students w/ID; $8 members, free for Film Stars.
