L.A Rebellion x2: Burnett and Woodberry Digital Restorations

Bless Their Little Hearts

Dir. Billy Woodberry, US, 1983, DCP, 82 min.

New Restoration

Working from a screenplay by Charles Burnett, Billy Woodberry expertly employs a neo-realist strategy similar to Killer of Sheep and accomplishes an emotionally resonant film that captures the harshness and humor of the lives of working folks. Bless Their Little Hearts is a key example of the work produced by the group of black filmmakers associated with the L.A. Rebellion which includes Burnett, Haile Gerima and Larry Clark.
