Django
director:
Sergio Corbucci
cast:
Franco Nero, Loredana Nusciak, Eduardo Fajardo

Known as “one of the greatest of all Spaghetti Westerns” (San Francisco Examiner), and scandalous when released due to its graphic violence, Django is the story of a lone gunslinger who drags around a mysterious coffin and becomes embroiled in a violent battle between the Mexican Army and bandit gangs over a great treasure. This gritty Spanish-Italian co-production brilliantly epitomizes major characteristics of the Western film, and also serves as an allegory for racial tension, with allusions to the KKK. As an influential cult film, Django has been referenced in over thirty unofficial sequels internationally, and now Quentin Tarantino’s Django Unchained can be added to the list.
