The Film Studies Department invites you to come to a two-part film event on a revolutionary 1973 film, supressed by the U.S. government for over thirty years: The Spook Who Sat by the Door (dir. Ivan Dixon, based on the book by Sam Greenlee).
On Wednesday, Feb 3 at 4:30-7:00pm, Assistant Professor Liz Reich (Film Studies) will screen The Spook Who Sat by the Door and give a talk on revolutionary black performance drawn from her forthcoming book.
The following week on Feb 10, also at 4:30-7pm, Associate Professor Christine Acham (University of Southern California) will screen her documentary investigating the story of Spook, entitled Infiltrating Hollywood: The Rise and Fall of the Spook Who Sat by the Door. She will run a Q&A following the screening.
Refreshments will be served and both events are being co-sponsored by Africana Studies.
