'Soul Man' teaser - European animation continues to grow

Postby Charles » Tue Aug 09, 2011 8:25 am

Got a lead on a cool animated feature film that's in progress.

'Soul Man' is in early stages of production, and is indicative of the growing sophistication of European animation as it migrates into new directions.

Soul Man is coming to the world courtesy of BlackLight pictures and Guillaume Ivernel.

According to the description provided by the producers, it's a blacksploitation road movie about an extraordinary girl. Her unlikely companions, the closest thing she has to a proper family, are an ex detective ala Dirty Harry of Polish origins and a bodasious woman with an abundant afro haircut who makes her living of larceny.

Here's a couple of links associated with the film...

Here's the teaser from both Vimeo and Youtube. The video's the same, embedding both just for the heck of it.

Gee, I wonder if any actual black people had anything to do with creating and owning a part of this flick?

Maybe that's why they call it a "blacksploitation" movie.
