FILM FROM FEST FOCUS

Accent On Indies At FLIFF

FLIFF audiences love a good indie and this weekend's roster is as interesting and diverse as they come.
BLACK DYNAMITE, a spoof of 1970s blaxploitation movies directed by Scott Sanders, takes all the conventions of that sub-genre (strapping black heros, Afro-wearing femme fatales, cheesy scenery and costumes, all set to a wa-wa blues score) and makes them the object of both admiration and ridicule. In the simplistic plot, a "bad brutha" takes his revenge on "the man", in a chase throiugh blood-soaked city streets to the hallowed halls of the Honky House. Very politically incorrect in terms of its racist stereotyping, sexism and overall funky attitude, the film is a definite hoot.
