Free Public Session to Run April 19 from 12 – 1 pm (PDT)
The International Cinematographers Guild (ICG, IATSE Local 600) and ICG Magazine will hold their sixth “Deep Dive” conversation on Monday, April 19 from 12 – 1 pm (PDT) with the co-writer/director Shaka King and cinematographer Sean Bobbitt, BSC of Judas And The Black Messiah, nominated for six Oscars including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay and Best Cinematography, plus numerous other awards. David Geffner, executive editor of ICG Magazine, will moderate.
The Warner Bros. film, which was showcased at Sundance 2021, features the life and activism of Black Panther leader Fred Hampton who was assassinated at the hands of the FBI’s COINTEL program in 1969.
King and Bobbitt will discuss how they were able to realistically recreate the historic events as a sharp reminder that what happened over fifty years ago bears a striking resemblance to the civil unrest of today. From the stunning continuous shot in a Chicago pool hall that opens the film to recreated documentary footage of FBI informant William O’Neal discussing Hampton’s murder, Bobbitt used all the modern cinematographic tools that were available to him.
