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.

The banned South African Blaxploitation film has now made it to DVD for our viewing pleasure. 

When local soccer team The Eagles fall prey to a series of onslaughts from a mysterious gangster only a week before the championship final, the team turns to the one man that can help save their chances at victory - Joe Bullet (Ken Gampu).

In the end he will have to infiltrate the mysterious gangster's hide-out in a dangerous cat-and-mouse rescue mission to save not only The Eagles' two kidnapped star players, but that of his beautiful love interest, Beauty (Abigail Kubeka). The odds will be stacked against him, but he's the man that fights crime, the man that no one can tie down! Joe Bullet!
