EVE’S BAYOU, 1997, Swank, 109 min, USA, Dir: Kasi Lemmons. 

This 1960s-set Southern gothic drama follows the shifting psychological ties that bind an affluent Black family in Louisiana as seen through the eyes of 10-year-old Eve (Jurnee Smollett), who worships her philandering father (Samuel L. Jackson). Named to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry, writer-director Kasi Lemmons’ feature debut simmers with both secrets and the supernatural.

FORMAT: 35mm

THE CAVEMAN’S VALENTINE, 2001, Universal, 105 min, USA, Dir: Kasi Lemmons. 

In this spine-tingling and visually stunning thriller from director Kasi Lemmons, Samuel L. Jackson stars as as Romulus Ledbetter, a misunderstood musician turned recluse, hiding from personal demons in a New York City cave. When Romulus finds the frozen body of a young drifter in a tree, the authorities – including his police officer daughter (Aunjanue Ellis) – claim the death is accidental. Romulus is convinced the man was murdered by prominent art photographer David Leppenraub (Colm Feore). But how can he prove he’s right when everyone thinks he’s insane?
