Sweet Sweetbacks Baadasssss Song - 4K restoration!
Seattle premiere of new 4K restoration! Included in MoMA's permanent collection, Sweet Sweetback is one of the most significant features ever by an African-American filmmaker -- and is credited as one of the first blaxploitation films.  

Director/writer/producer/editor/composer Melvin Van Peebles stars as an orphan raised in a brothel and groomed to be a sex show performer. Set up by his boss and two corrupt cops for a murder he didn't commit, Sweetback is thrust into an increasingly hallucinogenic world of violence and bigotry where no one can be trusted, and the possibility of death lurks in every corner... Film courtesy of Xenon Pictures, Vinegar Syndrome and the American Genre Film Archive.

"Shook up cinema much as a brash young pugilist originally known as Cassius Clay had done in the boxing ring some years earlier." -- Todd Boyd, The Root

Melvin Van Peebles / 1971, USA
97min / digital
