Sus is an engrossing racial drama we’ve profiled a number of times here on S&A. In fact, you can read a review by Tambay HERE. It screened at several film festivals last year including the Pan African Film Festival and New Voices In Black Cinema Festival. Now, you finally get to see it for yourself thanks to Hulu.
Based on a play written by Barrie Keeffe, the film was directed by Robert Heath and stars Clint Dyer.
A quick recap of the story…
“1979: Election Night- A police interview room. Delroy’s pregnant white wife has been found dead in a pool of blood and he is brought in as the chief suspect. He is interrogated by D.S. Karn, a witty, psychotic racist and his violent sidekick D.C. Wilby. Both high on the prospect of a Conservative landslide victory they try to lure him into a quick confession. But racial profiling turns to callous humiliation and quickly gives way to a barrage of sinister violence. All of this ultimately leads to a shocking and devastating conclusion.”
