Jewels in the Wasteland

There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

This screening will feature a live introduction from AFS Founder Richard Linklater and a post-screening discussion on stage.

Dennis Hopper’s gritty L.A. gang film follows a pair of cops (Robert Duvall and Sean Penn) into the not-so-sunny Southern California turf of the Bloods and Crips, where their differing attitudes about policing are put to the test.

Continue the post-screening conversation at our Late Happy Hour: $2 off draft beer and wine from 8:30 PM – close!
