Screening of Charles Burnett's KILLER OF SHEEP @ B122 Wells Hall | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Prior to James Naremore’s talk on March 28, there will be a screening of his 1990 film To Sleep With Anger. Vagabond Harry (Danny Glover) pays an unexpected visit to his old chum Gideon (Paul Butler), who accepts the aimless man into his home, despite the fact that the household is already overcrowded. Hard-drinking yet charismatic, Harry both entertains and enrages Gideon and his wife, Suzie (Mary Alice). However, after Gideon falls gravely ill, Harry decides to step in and take his friend’s place in the household. Unfortunately, his intentions are far from pure, and the consequences are tragic.
