The Black Power Mix Tape 1967-1975
From 1965 to 1975, a crew of Swedish filmmakers went searching for the real America, and found a nation at war with itself and its values.

Working from this rediscovered 16mm footage, director Göran Hugo Olsson steers clear of the watered-down 'pop' take on the Black Power movement.

Long-form interviews with firebrand Panthers such as Angela Davis and Stokely Carmichael are cut against news reports and contemporary perspectives from subjects including singer Harry Belafonte.

Olsson brings the clarity of an outsiders' perspective to this inspired time capsule format in what is a superb companion piece to Agnes Varda's classic observational documentary, Black Panthers.
