ABOUT THE FILMS

 

HOLLYWOOD SHUFFLE, 1987, Park Circus, 82 min, Dir: Robert Townsend

A seminal work of independent filmmaking, HOLLYWOOD SHUFFLE continues to stun audiences with its funny, yet searing critique of Hollywood’s perception of blacks–and racial stereotypes in general. Robert Townsend produces, directs, writes and stars in this semi-autobiographical story of a young black actor struggling to break into an industry that has countless unjust roadblocks.

Format: 35mm


THE MIGHTY QUINN, 1989, Park Circus, 98 mins, Dir: Carl Schenkel

Denzel Washington and Robert Townsend star in this expertly crafted mystery-thriller-comedy set on a small Caribbean Island. After one of the wealthy residents turns up gruesomely murdered, Police chief Xavier Quinn (Washington) develops a list of suspects, including the small-time thief Maubee (Townsend), who happens to be Quinn’s best friend.

“The Mighty Quinn is a spy thriller, a buddy movie, a musical, a comedy and a picture that is wise about human nature. And yet with all of those qualities, it never seems to strain.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun Times, 4/4 stars

Format: DCP
