CYCLE GERIMA / BURNETT : Warming by the Devil's fire de Charles Burnett


Continuation of the cycle started in February 2018 "Young, gifted and black" on the cinema of Haile Gerima and Charles Burnett.
For this new appointment, Heure Exquise! presents two films by Haile Gérima - Sankofa and Teza - and Charles Burnett's Warming by the Devil's fire

Warming by the Devil's fire - Charles Burnett
(E.U / ALL - 2002 - 89 mn - VOSTF )

Director Charles Burnett (Killer of Sheep, My Brother's Wedding, To Sleep with Anger) presents a tale about a young boy's encounter with his family in Mississippi in the 1950s, and intergenerational tensions between the heavenly strains of gospel and the devilish moans of the blues.

Says Burnett: "The sound of the blues was a part of my environment that I took for granted. However, as years passed, the blues slowly emerged as an essential source of imagery, humor, irony, and insight that allows one to reflect on the human condition. I always wanted to do a story on the blues that not only reflected its nature and its content, but also alludes to the form itself. In short, a story that gives you the impression of the blues."
