Black Hollywood: Blaxploitation DVD

Shot entirely on location in Hollywood in 1984, this documentary explores the role of black actors, black directors and the black audience in American movies. In an actionpacked showcase of clips and interviews, Diahnne Abbott, Rosalind Cash and Alfre Woodard talk about negative stereotyping. Jim Brown, Vonetta McGee and D'Urville Martin come up with alternative solutions to the one-way-street that was "blaxploitation" and discuss new ways of advancing an independent black cinema. There is a rare interview with Lorenzo Tucker, the Black Valentino, about his career with Oscar Micheaux. Joel Fluellen and Vincent Tubbs tell memorable stories of what life was like for the few blacks working in Hollywood in the 50s and 60s.

USA, 1984. Color/B&W, 75 minutes.
