Killer of Sheep, a 1977 student film by  APR 02 2007

Killer of Sheep, a 1977 student film by Charles Burnett, is on the Library of Congress' National Film Registry and was selected as one of the 100 essential films of all time by the National Society of Film Critics but has never been shown in theaters because of music rights clearance issues. This year, the film is finally being released in theaters (it's showing at IFC Center in NYC through April 12) and will be available on DVD in the fall. Watch the trailer and read a bit more about it in the NY Times.
