Fear of a Black Hat

Dir. Rusty Cundieff
1993, 88min
With Cundieff, Larry B. Scott, Mark Christopher Lawrence

 

Gangsta rap gets the Spinal Tap treatment in this gag-a-minute mockumentary about a controversy-inciting trio with a penchant for outrageous headwear, questionable lyrics, and seriously NSFW turntablism. Taking aim at the genre’s over-the-top machismo, the feature debut from Rusty Cundieff (later the director for Chappelle's Show) is jam-packed with memorable one-liners: “Don't shoot until you see the whites.” “Of their eyes?” “Whose eyes?”

 
Oreos with Attitude

Dir. Larry Carty
1991, 30min

 

Richard (Keith L. Smith) and Janet (Jackie Roberts) are a young black couple desperate to “make it” in New York City. Inspired by Donald Trump’s The Art of the Deal (which the lead character is reading), they take social climbing to new heights by adopting a white child. A hit at New Directors/New Films, the film was declared “wickedly funny" by The New York Times.

An Apparatus Production. New 4K Restoration by IndieCollect.
