Two behind-the-scenes portraits of director Charles Burnett, from the time when he was creating a series of independently produced film masterpieces all reflecting the African American experience as lived in Los Angeles, which included Killer of Sheep (1978), My Brother’s Wedding (1983) and To Sleep with Anger (1990).
