    Baadasssss! 15
    Fri 10 – Thu 23 June Watershed
    Dir: Mario Van Peebles USA ‘03 1hr 48mins
    A richly entertaining re-telling of the making of Melvin Peebles’ ground-breaking 1971 hit ‘Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song’. His director/actor son Mario now plays the part of his own father: the maverick genius trying to overcome the hurdles that threatened to shut down production at every stage. Turned down by every major studio including Columbia, where he had a three-picture deal, Melvin was forced to basically self-finance his movie. Risking everything he had, he delivered to the world the first Black Ghetto hero on the big screen, sparking the birth of Blaxploitation cinema and providing the inspiration for generations of actors and filmmakers.
    Fee: £6.00 fulll / £4.00 concessions
