LA Times Food Bowl Presents: Killer of Sheep
Charles Burnett's KILLER OF SHEEP was one of the first 50 films to be selected for the Library of Congress National Film Registry and was chosen by the National Society of Film Critics as one of the 100 Essential Films. But, due to music licensing problems, the film was rarely screened, and then only in ragged 16mm prints. UCLA Film & Television Archives' dazzling 35mm restoration of this landmark film opened the world's eyes to one of the great films of cinema.

Charles Burnetts films focus on everyday life in black communities in a manner unseen in American cinema, combining incredibly lyrical elements with a starkly neo-realist, documentary-style approach that chronicles the unfolding story with depth and riveting simplicity.

In KILLER OF SHEEP, the protagonist, employed at the slaughterhouse, is suffering from the emotional side effects of his bloody occupation to such a degree that his entire life unhinges. His refusal to become involved in the similarly destructive, but human-focused occupations of his more affluent friends and acquaintances becomes the odd obstacle to the familys well being. Burnett once said of the film, [Stans] real problems lie within the family, trying to make that work and be a human being. You dont necessarily win battles; you survive.
