Deep Cuts and B-Sides: Da Sweet Blood of Jesus
April 10, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm CDT
Da Sweet Blood of Jesus is about a wealthy anthropologist who is stabbed by an ancient African dagger and turned into a vampire. Lee has said the film is about “Human beings who are addicted to blood” and called it “…A new kind of love story.” The first of Spike Lee’s films to be funded through Kickstarter, Da Sweet Blood of Jesus is a new take on an old trope.
Central Cinema Nights is a movie screening in the Central Library’s Durwood Film Vault taking place Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. Join us as we watch and discuss documentaries and feature films in a socially conscious setting, chosen to fit a monthly theme. This month’s theme: Deep Cuts and B-Sides.
Our April films may not be the most well-known of our selected directors, but they all showcase a slightly different vision from the acclaimed filmmakers. From stunning to silly, all these movies are from our Kanopy collection, accessible online with your Kansas City Public Library card.
Everyone is welcome! Movie screenings at the Central Library are always FREE and open to the public.
