The Spook Who Sat By The Door

Series: Portland Black Film Festival

THE SPOOK WHO SAT BY THE DOOR (1973): The film the government doesn't want you to see! When the CIA is forced to integrate, their first black agent secretly uses his training to organize black teenagers into guerrilla warriors bent on overthrowing the white establishment and starting a revolution. Originally pulled from theaters by the FBI and unavailable to be seen for years. Directed by Ivan Dixon, with original music by Herbie Hancock, we're proud to present this film on an extremely rare 35mm print!

Passes Accepted: Guest Pass and Member Guest Pass.
