  • BaadAsssss Cinema

    2002. Great Britain/USA. Directed by Isaac Julien. BaadAsssss Cinema is an apt examination of blaxploitation film, the 1970s explosion of on-screen black protagonists that thrilled black and white audiences alike with a potent combination of action, sex, and the funky styles of the day. The film features interviews with directors Gordon Parks, Jr., and Melvin Van Peebles, blaxploitation icon Pam Grier, critic bell hooks, and others. Both BaadAsssss Cinema and Baltimore reflect on the creation of meaning in cultural spaces and exemplify Julien’s dual approach, in which analytic inquiry meets playful fantasy. 56 min.
