Zulu (UK, 1964)

January 17, 2016 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM


UCLA Film & Television Archive and the Hugh M. Hefner Classic American Film Program present "Sound and Fury: The Films of Cy Endfield."

Zulu (UK, 1964)
Directed by Cy Endfield (as Cyril Endfield)

Arguably the climax of Cy Endfield’s directorial career is this chronicle of the historic siege of Rorke’s Drift in South Africa in 1879, where a small garrison of British soldiers successfully defend their station against attack by hordes of Zulu warriors. Debated ever since as either a lament or a celebration of British colonial expansion, the film was a smash hit in Britain, cementing Endfield’s international reputation and his legacy.
