On television: How To Eat Your Watermelon In White Company (and Enjoy It)

Joe Angio’s How To Eat Your Watermelon In White Company (and Enjoy It) premieres tonight on IFC at 9 pm Eastern.

The film covers the life and work of Melvin Van Peebles, a pioneer of African-American cinema whose works include Sweet Sweetback’s Baadasssss Song and Story of a Three Day Pass.

The film’s been getting great reviews in the New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, and so on. I’ve not seen it yet, so that’s about all I know, but I look forward to seeing it.

    I have seen it and it is pretty entertaining. A great great character. Almost mythical.
