Tuesday, May 31 at 7:30pm  Film/Discussion/Book Signing
In Person: Cashiers du Cinemart Author/Editor MIKE WHITE

In the fine tradition of commercial (read: white) films "re-contextualized" for Black audiences
(Abby aka The Blaxorcist (1974), Blackenstein (1973), and Blacula (1972) just to name a
few), comes a late entry in the game, Black Shampoo (1976). Loosely based on Hal Ashby's
Shampoo (1975), a Warren Beatty vehicle about the undoing of a libidinous hairdresser,
Black Shampoo is a trashy, outrageous masterpiece. John Daniels stars as Jonathan
Knight, a Sunset Strip hairdresser and salon owner,
known for his prowess with the ladies as much as he is
for their coiffures. All goes well for Mr. Knight until, true to the
Blaxploitation formula, he runs afoul of the Mob trying to protect
his sexy receptionist. Soon the streets of Hollywood run
red as super stud Knight dispenses of his adversaries in
an unexpected grisly fashion. Filled with violence (including the famous "chainsaw scene"), gratuitous
sex, quotable one-liners, and outrageous costumes, Black Shampoo is a highly entertaining bit
of cinematic trash you'll truly enjoy. (USA, 1976, DVD, 82 min., color)
Tuesday, May 31 at 7:30pm  Film/Discussion/Book Signing BLACK SHAMPOO
In Person: Cashiers du Cinemart Author/Editor MIKE WHITE
Often confused with the ginger director, Mike White is creator and editor of Cashiers du
Cinemart magazine, the best of which has been collected in his new book, Impossibly Funky.
White's magazine has been publishing since 1994 and covered overlooked cinematic gems.
He'll introduce the film, take questions after the screening, and sign copies of his book.
