MY BROTHER’S WEDDING | Dir. Charles Burnett | 1983 | Digital
November 3 @ 7pm Theatre Junction Grand
The lesser-known follow up film to Burnett’s groundbreaking “Killer of Sheep”, My Brother’s Wedding is a tragic comedy that takes place in South Central Los Angeles. The story focuses on a young man who hasn’t made much of his life as of yet, and at a crucial point in his life, he is unable to make the proper decision, a sober decision, a moral decision. He has a distinct romantic notion about life in the ghetto and yet he is given the task of being his brother’s keeper; he feels rather than sees, and as a consequence his capacity for judging things off in the distance is limited.
