The Devil Finds Work: James Baldwin on Film
SEPT 11 -14, 2015
WALTER READE THEATER, FRANCESCA BEALE THEATER
 
Probing the set of assumptions that govern American cinematic expectations, James Baldwin’s 1976 book-length essay, The Devil Finds Work, is as much preoccupied with the seductive and distorted power of American cinema as it is with the complex racial politics that inform such cultural production. From his intriguing identification with Bette Davis, to piercing analyses of Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner, In the Heat of the Night, and The Exorcist, to an extended discussion of The Defiant Ones, Baldwin lays bare our subconscious investments and confirms that “cinema is the language of our dreams.”.
