Critics and audiences alike have gotten behind Mario Van Peebles' candid portrait of his father Melvin's struggle as a young, black director during the society-shifting early '70s. Determined to make a film that matters, Melvin (played by son Mario) deals with two-faced backers, a rag tag crew, threatening creditors and various shades of Hollywood hypocrisy. Obsessed and with everything on the line, including his failing eyesight and family, his only choice is to stick to his guns and do whatever it takes to get his neo-blaxploitation epic Sweet Sweetback's Baadasssss Song to the audience for which it was envisioned. The real-life father and son dynamic brings an intimacy to this inspiring and often hilarious tribute to the father of black cinema. The result is a seamless layering of entertaining drama and poignant documentary that mirrors itself from every angle and never loses its edge.

When the Commies snatch George Jessel, Butterfly McQueen, Dorothy Lamour and other world leaders, America's Super Secret Agency forms The Phynx, a pre-fab pop band whose musical mission is to play a concert in the castle where the captives are held and rock the prisoners free. A movie that defies description, The Phynx was a byproduct of the Swinging Sixties, an old school attempt to make a zany Monkees-style farce that combined politics and pop tunes (courtesy of Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller) with cameo appearances by dozens of old-time movie stars including Maureen O'Sullivan, Leo Gorcey, Rudy Vallee, Pat O'Brien, Ruby Keeler and Joan Blondell. Barely released in theaters and virtually unseen for decades, this is a rare chance to view this one-of-a-kind spy spoof, a whacky rock 'n' roll comedy that must be seen to be believed!
