‘The Spook Who Sat by the Door’

October 9 | 2:00 pm

$7 – $9

‘The Spook Who Sat by the Door’ is a satire on race relations and a powerful polemic about institutional racism. Produced by U.S. foreign service veteran Sam Greenlee as an adaptation of his own novel and directed by Ivan Dixon (‘Nothing But A Man’), the 1973 thriller follows a token Black CIA employee who uses his training to mastermind a guerrilla war against the police and government. It’s a neglected, long-suppressed masterpiece.
