PROGRAMMERS NOTES

In An Uninvited Guest, Richard B. Pierre’s use of metaphor is striking and unique. The three-minute film follows a black man who watches another black man killed by a police officer while eating dinner. Shot by leading Cinematographer Gayle Yee, this film is a true psychological thriller that makes a startling commentary on police brutality, forcing the viewer to conclude that if it can happen to him, it can also happen to me.

This film is very powerful as Pierre’s conceit is the gateway to the best tool we have to fight against discrimination: empathy.
