Yesterday I announced the screening of Charles Burnett’s Killer of Sheep, along with the filmmaking masterclass he's leading at the British Film Institute on Oct 2nd (HERE). But if you can’t make it or want a second chance to see him, you'll have some more opportunities.

On Weds Oct. 9 at 7PM Burnett will appear in person at the Brixton Library, located at Brixton Oval in LambethLondon, for a conversation called "From George to Treyvon."

As he will at BFI, Burnett will screen clips and discuss from his new film, 83 Days: The Murder of George Stinney Jr., which tells the true storyof what took place in South Carolina in 1944, when 14 year old George Stinney was arrested for the murder of killing two white girls, a crime which he did not commit.

Coerced into confessing that he committed the crime, he was rushed through the system and straight to the electric chair in just 83 days. Stinney is still today the youngest person to ever be executed in the United States, though several lawyers are still working to obtain a posthumous pardon for Stinney based on a deathbed confession.

For more information on this event at the Brixton Library go HERE.

But before that on Sunday Oct. 6th  in Bristol at the Watershed Venue Burnett will be in person for a screening of Killer of Sheep at 3PM as part of the Watershed's month long film series of indepndent black cinema  including Burnett's My Brother's Wedding, To Sleep With Anger, Halie Gerima’s Bush Mama (which was photographed by Burnett) and The Glass Shield. 

Fior more info on that series go HERE

And then Thursday 10th at 6PM in Sheffield at The Showroom Workstation, Burnett will also appear in person for a screening of Sheep.
