Facets Night School: "Putney Swope"

  • Jul 13, 2013 · 11:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

As part of its midnight Film School series, Facets is showing the legendary 60s cult film "Putney Swope" Saturday at midnight.  Directed by Iron Man Sr., it's a go-for-broke satire on both race relations and the advertising industry, in which an African-American inadvertently heads the agency, leading to him firing everyone, running it as a black power organization, and putting out some parody commercials that shock even today.  The event will also feature writer Melody Kamali talking about the movie's cultural impact and importance before and after the film's airing.

    excellent flick, historically fascinating example of that era's comedic sensibilities, highly recommended!!!--if we had a Maybe RSVP I'd sign up, but I'm too old and weary to make any promises for midnight events...
