Also! Don't miss the new 45th Anniversary restoration of Bill Gunn's Ganja & Hess screening August 17th - 23rd!

This entirely African American-conceived and produced ensemble drama is the result of a collaboration of a pair of pioneering Black artists: writer Ishmael Reed and filmmaker Bill Gunn, who wrote and directed the underground classic Ganja & Hess and wrote the screenplay for Hal Ashby's The Landlord. Originally intended to air on public television in 1980, it went unseen for many years; the original tapes have been carefully restored by Kino Lorber and the film is now available in its full-length version for the first time in decades!

Cinematographer: Robert Polidori | Screenwriter: Ishmael Reed
Cast: Vertamae Grosvenor, Walter Cotton, Mizan Kirby
