Free Screening of “Stop” at BAM

What: A free screening of Stop, an originally unreleased film of 1970 directed by Bill Gunn, will be held at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. “An emotionally violent poet and his wife leave their snowy confines and head to San Juan, their marriage imploding. Filmed in languorous soft light, the images turn from dreamlike to hallucinogenic when another couple enters their orbit. One of the first studio films by an African-American director, unique for its experimental narrative and for introducing a homosexual element new to the period. Perhaps all reasons it was never released.”

When/Where: April 4th at 2:00PM at BAM Rose Cinemas (30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn).
