Black Film Series: ‘Watermelon Woman’ & ‘Destination Planet Negro’
February 17 - February 22$10 – $12
Independent Picture House’s Black Film Series presents mock documentary ‘The Watermelon Woman’ (1996), which follows a Black lesbian filmmaker on the trail of a beautiful Black actress who played a mammy character in 1930s dramas. Also, in the satirical send-up of cheap sci-fi flicks ‘Destination Planet Negro’ (2013), three African American intellectuals respond to Jim Crow in 1939 by building and manning a rocket to Mars. Things go haywire and they land in America in 2013.
