Simply astonishing from start to finish !!

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 is unique. It gathers together a treasure trove of original film footage produced for Swedish television and shot in the US during that tempestuous period of American history, when the Black Power movement, anti-Vietnam-war protests, rebellious students, and a general resistance to authority captured the attention of the world — especially in Sweden, where in the words of filmmaker Göran Hugo Olsson, documentary-makers reacted “with a combination of commitment and naïveté” to the upheavals across the Atlantic.

Found in a basement these are 40 year old never-before-seen interviews with Angela Davis, Stokely Carmichael, Huey P Newton, Kathleen Cleaver, Eldridge Cleaver, Harry Belafonte, Bobby Seale, Minister Farrakhan. Also featuring Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli and Mario Van Peebles.
Further screenings on 29,31 Oct. 4,5,6 November
