New Partnership With FilmDoo

www.filmdoo.com
We are happy to announce our partnership with FilmDoo, which is a Video on Demand (VOD) based company that focus on the diversity of independent and international films from around the world. FilmDoo is a particularly great resource for African cinema, which is an area DAARAC has been expanding on. We will also be helping FilmDoo expand their diversity of films by introducing more African-American cinema to the international community, especially independent films that are not as easily available.

Joe Bullet (1973)
As many know, DAARAC focuses on the education of Black Cinema and JOE BULLET is a testament to what we do here. Banned by the South African Apartheid Government, JOE BULLET was unseen until Gravel Road Distribution Group in cooperation with Retro Afrika Bioscope remastered the film for release. This film will be featured on FilmDoo for viewing as well as many other South African Blaxploitation films that were banned.

The partnership with FilmDoo will definitely open new avenues of films that we haven’t covered at DAARAC and we look forward to continue the tradition of promoting, educating and bringing awareness to Black Cinema around the world.

Storyline
The time is 1942, a year after Pearl Harbor; the place is National Studios, a fictitious Hollywood motion picture studio. Mignon Duprée, a Black woman studio executive who appears to be white and Ester Jeeter, an African American woman who is the singing voice for a white Hollywood star are forced to come to grips with a society that perpetuates false images as status quo. This highly-acclaimed drama by one of the leading African American women directors follows Mignon's dilemma, Ester's struggle and the use of cinema in wartime Hollywood: three illusions in conflict with reality.
