Repressed Cinema presents Putney Swope. This event is part of the Portland Black Film Festival.
Putney Swope (1969) Directed by Robert Downey Sr, this is a dark satire where the token black employee at an advertising firm is accidentally put in charge. He renames the company "Truth and Soul", replaces the white employees with his militant brothers, and becomes a "threat" to national security.
The Portland Black Film Festival is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
