DNR Filmclub | Afro-American month: The Spook Who Sat by the Door

During April we will screen films by and about African-Americans, ranging from art house to blaxploitation, all these films have in common a subversive undertone and much coolness on the surface.

The Spook Who Sat by the Door (Ivan Dixon, 1973)
A former CIA agent (Lawrence Cook) organizes black teenagers into well-trained guerrilla bands bent on overthrowing the white establishment. Based on a book with the same double meaning title, 'The Spook Who Sat by the Door' might long have been recognised as one of the great African-American calls to arms – had it not been suppressed by the FBI. A most radical blaxploitation film with a revolutionary groove that has an original score by the great jazz musician Herbie Hancock.

Other films in the DNR Filmclub Afro-American month:

Di 17 | Bird (Clint Eastwood, 1988)
Di 24 | I Am Not Your Negro (Raoul Peck, 2016)
