A most radical blaxploitation film with a revolutionary groove. (1973)

April: Afro-American month
During April we will screen films by and about African-Americans, ranging from art house to blaxploitation, all these films  have in common a subversive undertone and much coolness on the surface. 

The Spook Who Sat by the Door (Ivan Dixon, 1973)
A former CIA agent (Lawrence Cook) organizes black teenagers into well-trained guerrilla bands bent on overthrowing the white establishment.
Based on a book with the same double meaning title, “The Spook Who Sat by the Door” might long have been recognised as one of the great African-American calls to arms – had it not been suppressed by the FBI. A most radical blaxploitation film with a revolutionary groove that has an original score by the great jazz musician Herbie Hancock.
