“How to Eat your Watermelon in White Company(and enjoy it)”. This is the title of Melvin Van Peebles’s Documentary. It came out in about… 2006 and it’s FLY! It’s basically his story, how he muscles into the film industry from the back. This is at a time when America wasn’t giving any black film makers a chance to flourish(or didn’t want to see them at all). So… he made his way through Europe. They were a little more open about it and even then he still broke rules in order to accomplish what he desired. A very interesting and inspirational joint. You need to check it out if you are interested in film making, movie production, if you are trying to get your career of it’s feet or shit… if you’re interested. HAAAA! HOLLLAAAAA! FANG!
