Product Description

Critics and audiences alike have gotten behind Mario Van Peebles' candid portrait of his father Melvin's struggle as a young, black director during the society-shifting early '70s. Determined to make a film that matters, Melvin (played by son Mario) deals with two-faced backers, a rag tag crew, threatening creditors and various shades of Hollywood hypocrisy. Obsessed and with everything on the line, including his failing eyesight and family, his only choice is to stick to his guns and do whatever it takes to get his neo-blaxploitation epic Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song to the audience for which it was envisioned. The real-life father and son dynamic brings an intimacy to this inspiring and often hilarious tribute to the father of black cinema. The result is a seamless layering of entertaining drama and poignant documentary that mirrors itself from every angle and never loses itsedge.

This has been a movie that I've admired for sometime. It is inspirational and shows what an artist with a message can pull off against the odds. Not a fan of the actual film that is shown being made, but this man was hell-bent on making his vision a reality. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great film, with plenty of skin Oct. 12 2016

Great film, with plenty of skin. Groovy baby, yeah! Suspenseful, unpredictable, and historical. Based on the film "Sweet Sweetbacks Badass Song." A great era film, features the band Earth, Wind, and Fire getting their start. A black underdog comes out on top, with the help of his white film crew members. Check it out.

This is an interesting and well done film for anyone into the story of the early days of Earth, Wind & Fire and the evolution of black entertainment of the 60s on. Mario and Mandela van Peebles do an amazing job of playing out the story of the older father son combo that started it all.
