Fantastic 35MM trailer donation to the Duke archive, very generous of them to let us have this one, it’s a well known film but a super rare 35MM trailer, you’ll have to come and join us at DukeFest in July to find out what it is! If anyone else wants to donate any 35MM, or weird old video tapes, then please just let us know.
We had a great online chat last night with the fine folks at the Department Of Afro-American Research and Culture (DAARAC) aka Blaxploitation Pride! They shared with us their list of 7 lost and long unseen Blaxploitation classics they’re trying to track down, take a look at the titles on the image below, if anyone has any leads on any of these films then please do drop them, or us, a line!
Really pleased to say that we found the 35MM trailer for The Long Night aka Steeley Brown, a few years back, now we just need to find the film itself. There was a screening of it a while ago in NYC, but now it seems to have vanished again.
Check out our trailer for the film right here:
Also it’s known that Hangup aka Superdude exists in the AGFA archive in Austin, Texas and has been screened once at one of their Drafthouse cinemas, so that one is sort of found, even though we can’t watch it right now.
