THE FLY CINEMA OF MICHAEL SCHULTZ

November at the Trylon

Measured and thoughtful while still exuding straight funk, Michael Schultz’s films have the rare ability to weave between large musical numbers, entertaining action, and intimate moments. This skill—all while keeping Black culture at the forefront—allowed him to span multiple genres and decades.

GREASED LIGHTNING

(1977, 35mm, 96m) dir Michael Schultz w/Richard Pryor, Pam Grier, Beau Bridges. Wendell Scott (Pryor) attempts to be the first Black stock car driver in the upper tier of NASCAR. Tense and insightful, Schultz’s film is one of the great underdog stories of 1970s cinema. SUN 7:30 MON/TUE 7:00 9:00


Showings: Nov. 27 7:30, Nov. 28 7:00, 9:00, Nov. 29 7:00, 9:00
