The Exiles 12/09/23

The Milestone Cinematheque

Take a trip to Los Angeles in the late 1950s . . . but to the low-rent district of Bunker Hill, where a transient Native American population pursues an aimless lifestyle on the nighttime streets. It’s a time machine to Angels Flight, the Grand Central Market and a ‘Bukowski-land’ of skid row bars. USC grad Kent McKenzie’s 35mm independent feature was never picked up for distribution. He died before it was rediscovered, restored and premiered to critical acclaim. The special edition contains more Mackenzie films and docus about Native American heritage. On Blu-ray from The Milestone Cinematheque.
