Directed by Melvin Van Peebles | 1971

With Van Peebles, Hubert Scales, Simon Chuckster

A brand new 4K restoration!

Melvin Van Peebles’ landmark of black independent cinema stars the one-man auteur as a strapping sex-show performer who stands up to police brutality then finds himself on the run from the law through the underbelly of 70s LA. Combining X-rated spectacle, New Wave experimentation, and stick-it-to-the-man politics, Van Peebles created what Huey P. Newton called “the first truly revolutionary Black film.” Brand new 4k restoration!
