Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song

USA  ·  1971  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  97'  ·  o.v. English

The film that launched an entire era of imitators, from its independent mode of production to its radical form of address, also its revolutionary call to action. Melvin Van Peebles laid it all on the line, and the result is a mythical film that is the birth of a modern black cinema.


This film features scenes that could shock the sensitivity of some viewers.
