This week we're showing the controversial 1973 film THE SPOOK WHO SAT BY THE DOOR, of which nearly every print was disappeared shortly after its release. Largely the film languished in obscurity, although it remained notorious for its subject matter: a depiction of a scorned black CIA agent who uses his special training to create an army of guerillas to overthrow the racist power structure. Plus, the soundtrack was written and performed bythe one and only Herbie Hancock! For many years the film only circulated on low quality bootleg VHS, but has finally been rereleased!
here are two reviews of THE SPOOK WHO SAT BY THE DOOR:
Portland Books to Prisoners will hold a discussion following the film, and will be accepting donations of books in good condition, stamps, and cash (suggested donation $1-$6, to be split with Liberty Hall) from those who can contribute. Join us for the film and show your support!
THURSDAY OCTOBER 14, 7:30 PM- @ LIBERTY HALL 311 N IVY (one block south of N fremont, two blocks west of vancouver ave)
