In 1957, African-American astronauts found themselves unable to break the color barrier at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Undaunted, and on a shoestring budget, they formed their own space program, the "Negro-American Space Society of Astronauts" (NASSA). Told in documentary style satirizing Ken Burns' documentary "The Civil War," this comedic short traces NASSA's rise and fall with a nod to the true history of the Negro Baseball Leagues.Written by
Absolutely hilarious. Great spoof of the baseball Negro League documentaries.
This film is available online at a web site by the same name as the title. It's well worth the time it takes to go watch it.
I don't know that the merchandise is very "wearable", because you'd lose the satirical aspect of the movie, and the movie is not known to a broad enough audience.
All in all, I hope to find more gems like this one. . . this movie proves that a huge budget is not required for quality film-making.
Please spread the word of this film to others who would like it. . . word of mouth seems to be the best way to get the word out. This might encourage more Internet independent films to be made by people with a real vision and talent for the task.
