Keywords: Documentary

Documentary examines the Black Power movement in 1960s and 70s America through the lenses of Swedish journalists.

ABSTRACT
Described as a "treasure trove" of footage by the parties responsible for its capture and eventual release, The Black Power Mixtape: 1967-75 examines the American Black Power movement from the viewpoint of a group of Swedish journalists drawn to the country by stories of urban discontent and revolution, combining archive footage with interviews from some of the era's most important figures to present a compelling tale of struggles for equality in a long-prejudiced society.
