Swedish television journalists document the early Black power movement in the United States.

Opinion

From Library Staff

HUMAN RIGHTS - From 1967-1975, a group of Swedish journalists filmed such leaders of the Black Power movement as Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver. The 16mm cache of tapes was long forgotten, until Danny Glover helped bring them to the big screen.

This film gets criticism for being "scattered", but I love the wide-ranging, highly nuanced perspectives offered here. The lack of polish is exactly what gives these snippets of interviews human interest and emotional depth. It gives you such a strong sense of the Swedes simply trying to figure out what the heck was going on in a cultural context that they couldn't understand. For those of us who didn't live through first wave Black Power, and only have access to stories where the discrepancies of reality are smoothed out, this documentary gives insight to more than the reductionist "MLK vs Black Panthers" tagline.

Interesting documentary for those interested in the history of struggle. Lots of interviews, so it is more of a serious documentary.
