LOS ANGELES — Hot Mess Entertainment, the makers of "12 Inches a Slave," sent out an e-flyer to both adult and mainstream producers, directors and cinematographers to congratulate the team behind Sunday’s Academy Award Best Picture winner "12 Years A Slave."
"We like to think of our effort as a sequel of sorts, because it shows how far the black man has truly come," said Howard Levine, the Exile exec who distributes the film, adding "Every white woman I know wants to be with a hung black man. It makes it hard for a smaller Jewish man."
While the film has nothing to do with slavery, it features five white women "chained to black dick," the box cover says. The film has garnered good reviews from several sources, including Die-Screaming.com, which called it an "expertly crafted and intense porn film that fires on all cylinders … it delivers on everything you'd expect from the big-black-dick genre."
While Levine and the “12-Inch” producers say they would have appreciated a red carpet invitation, they are taking it all in stride.
"Our ‘12 Years’ brothers know our heart was with them, and we'd like to think we had at least a little to do with the publicity around their success," Levine concluded.
