Part icon, part iconoclast, Melvin Van Peebles is a filmmaker with a history that remains as fascinating as any of his motion pictures.

This playful documentary (full of rare archival footage and unforgettable backstage stories from Spike Lee, Mario Van Peebles, Gil Scott-Heron, Gordon Parks and others) is a skilfully crafted tale of how a young black kid from Chicago ended up making one of the most controversial independent films in American history - Sweet Sweetback's Badassss Song.

How to Eat Your Watermelon in White Company doesn’t just chronicle the rise of one of independent films finest young directors, but celebrates the rise of independent film itself.
