Born in Mississippi, raised in Watts, educated at UCLA, "Killer of Sheep" director, CHARLES BURNETT, at KAFFNY!

“Killer of Sheep” Director, Charles Burnett, on The LA Riots

in Mississippi, raised in Watts,  educated at UCLA Film School, “Killer
of Sheep” director,  Charles Burnett is one of the most influential
African American filmmakers.  Watch live from the Korean American Film
Festival/New York on March 19, 2011, as he discusses the likeliness of
another LA Riots, redlining, the LAPD and teaching his children how to
handle the police if ever confronted by them.

Could the police have stopped the LA riots from going that far?  Did
the riots happen as a result of a gap between the rich and the poor? 
Did we see all the video footage with regards to Rodney King and
Latasha Harlins, or was there more to the story?  Did Caucasians take
care of the Caucasians? Have you ever observed redlining occur in an
urban neighborhood?  Discuss Korean American immigrants and African
Americans living in close proximity with one another.  Is racism more
prevalent today than in 1950? Is history repeating itself, Chernobyl
(1986)/Fukushima Dai-ichi (2011), Libya Pan Am Flight 73 (Sept 5,
1986)/Muammar Gaddafi (2011), LA Riots (April 29, 1992- then and
now?).  With the present price of gas, and cost of housing and living
increases, are the riots bound to happen again?

Watch Dai Sil Kim-Gibson’s and Charles Burnett’s films on the LA
Riots, “Wet Sand: Voices from LA”, and “Sa-I-Gu”, and spark a
discussion with friends and colleagues, and perhaps a change can occur!

“The goal of an officer serving the LAPD is to preserve their life and the lives of their partners.” -Charles Burnett
