Oh Dem Watermelons

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

"Original idea and inspiration from La Course aux Potirons (1907) by Louis Feuillade." (RAN)

"A major American underground classic. This film originally served as a theatrical intermission in the San Francisco Mime Troupe's social-political satire "A Minstrel Show, or Civil Rights in a Cracker Barrel", but it quickly took on a life of its own. Oh Dem Watermelons takes hilarious and absurd jabs at the watermelon as a tired Black stereotype, using a wild mix of collage, animation, and irreverence, set to a propulsive soundtrack by Steve Reich." (Mark Toscano)
