Killer of Sheep, USA , 1977, 80'
A graduation film shot in black and white and presented worldwide by the director, who received the Berlinale critics' prize, among others. His childhood memories of the Watts neighbourhood mingle with the story of a man who works at a sheep slaughterhouse. The film involves professional actors and people from the street to offer a documentary-fiction. Neighbourhood life, the present, its rituals, the family, childhood, oppression... And a fantastic soundtrack by the greats of jazz and blues of the time.
