Synopsis

Swedish documentary director Göran Olsson compiles this feature-length collection of archive footage chronicling the US Black Power movement, originally shot by a group of Swedish television journalists during the 1960s and 70s. Despite its geographical and cultural distance, the Swedish media observed the unfolding events of the Black Power movement in the United States with avid interest, which is arguably more than can be said for the mainstream media in the United States itself.


Our review

"Pulled from fascinating footage shot by Swedish journalists that was found in a basement, this eye-opening, vivid, documentary lets us see into society that's widely unseen outside the black community, even if the film's motives are a little unclear."
