VS-223: Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song [BD/DVD Combo] *Limited Slipcover Edition of 2000*

This special limited edition embossed slipcover (designed by Earl Kessler Jr.) is limited to just 2,000 units and is only available here at!

One of the most iconic, notorious, and influential American films of the 1970s, Melvin Van Peebles’ SWEET SWEETBACK’S BAADASSSSS SONG stars Van Peebles as Sweetback, a black orphan raised in a brothel and groomed into becoming a sex show performer. Set up by his boss and two corrupt white policemen for a murder he didn’t commit, Sweetback escapes custody only to find himself thrust into an increasingly hallucinogenic world of violence and bigotry where no one can be trusted and the possibility of death lurks at every corner…

Considered to be among the most significant features ever directed by a black filmmaker and included in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art, SWEET SWEETBACK is a brutal and shocking story of survival and is credited as the first ‘blaxploitation’ film ever made. Featuring a rousing score from a nascent Earth, Wind, & Fire as well as surrealist tinged visuals from cinematographer Robert Maxwell, Van Peebles creates an unforgettable and immersive study of perseverance in the face of racism. Vinegar Syndrome proudly brings this landmark film to Blu-ray, newly restored in 4K from its original 35mm camera negative.

Important May preorder info:

While you might be excited to receive your May pre-orders ASAP, we have a special shipping option which will allow you to hold off shipping your May pre-orders until after our upcoming Halfway to Black Friday sale (May 25-28th) so that everything you get during the sale ships together in one big package, saving us on shipping supplies and saving you on shipping costs. Just select the 'Hold until after Halfway to Black Friday' shipping option at checkout; you will be charged for shipping now, but any orders placed during the sale will ship for FREE with this pre-order. Of course, if you don't want to wait, just checkout normally and your pre-orders will ship the first or second week of May, as usual.

Halfway to Black Friday sale info:

• Our Halfway to Black Friday sale is Memorial Day Weekend (May 25th - 28th).

• Nearly everything in our catalog (excluding some of the newest releases) will be 50% off SRP (some items will be discounted even greater!)

• Our 'Halfway to Black Friday' packages will be available once again, offering heavy discounts for pre-ordering ALL of our releases (or just the Blus) that come out between June and December.

• We've also got a brand new 2018 catalogue of film in the works, plus another surprise or two…or three.

• Of course, the main focus is no doubt going to be the two surprise Blu-rays. A couple more hints: while both were shot in the 70s, they each saw releases in the 80s. One such release was a standard reissue while the other remained unavailable for viewing for over half a decade after completion of principal photography.
