GANJA & HESS
1973, Kino Lorber, 113 min, USA, Dir: Bill Gunn

Flirting with the conventions of blaxploitation and horror, Bill Gunn’s revolutionary independent film is a highly stylized and utterly original treatise on sex, religion and African-American identity. Duane Jones (NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD) stars as anthropologist Hess Green, who is stabbed with an ancient ceremonial dagger by his unstable assistant (director Bill Gunn), bestowing upon him the blessing of immortality ... and the curse of an unquenchable thirst for blood. When the assistant’s beautiful and outspoken wife, Ganja (Marlene Clark), comes searching for her missing husband, she and Hess form an unexpected partnership and explore just how much power blood holds.


Special Ticket Prices: $20 General, $15 Cinematheque Members. No vouchers.
