February 18, 2020
The Festival Film Series is dedicated to showing obscure films in projected 16mm format.
The 2020 FESTIVAL FILM SERIES starts on February 18 with DR. BLACK, MR. HYDE. This film is a 1976 blaxploitation horror film loosely inspired by the novella, Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. The film stars Bernie Casey and Rosalind Cash and was directed by William Crain. According to projectionist Don Zessin, the 16mm print we will be screening is a theatrical print. This is a film deep within the genre and to our knowledge was never released outside its initial showings.
