Arthouse Alert: Black Panthers' Doc "The Black Power Mixtape" Friday (3/11) in South Beach
Part of the 2011 Miami International Film Festival, this hard-hitting documentary features exclusive footage of Black Panther leaders like Angela Davis, Huey Newton, and Eldridge Cleaver. After a trove of 16mm footage originally shot by a Swedish film crew of the movement and its leaders was recently discovered, director Göran Hugo Olsson pieced together the interviews to create a stark portrait of 1970s America. Featuring narration by Erykah Badu, Melvin Van Peebles, and Harry Belafonte, and musical direction by The Roots’ ?uestlove Thompson. -Finn Cohen
