Attend this film fest: Ghett'Out Film Festival at the Brattle

One of the most influential and beloved of independent films, Charles Burnett's Killer of Sheep (1979) tells the stark and wrenching story of a stockyard worker in Watts whose ennui and frustration threatens to destroy his family and his life. Few filmmakers have so successfully recreated the enervating reality of everyday existence and its fleeting glimpses of transcendence and beauty. Burnett, one of our greatest and least appreciated filmmakers, will be on hand to discuss the film. It is the first selection in the Ghett'Out Film Festival, a series of low-budget, French-produced movies seeking a broader audience, and it takes place at the Brattle Theatre, 40 Brattle St, Cambridge | Friday, April 6 @ 7:30 pm |  $9.75; $7.75 students; $6.75 seniors | 617.876.6837 or
