Product Description:

ABAR: BLACK SUPERMAN arrived on the heels of the most popular 1970s blaxploitation flicks, but as one that focuses less on violence and more on legitimate social issues without sacrificing a drop of delicious camp, it's a truly expressive stand-out. Confronted with the racist attitude that permeates his new neighborhood, a black father with a background in science concocts an elixir that transforms a local bodyguard into a veritable superman who then leads a team of urban guerilla vigilantes.

Product Description:

SCI-FI MEETS BLAXPLOITATION…WITH HILARIOUS CONSEQUENCES!

Abar arrived just as the '70s blaxploitation boom was beginning to wane. What separates this particular effort from the glut of films produced during that period, however, is its positive non-violent approach to what is still a serious problem plaguing the low-income neighborhoods of every city.
