A film byGöran Hugo Olsson




SundanceSelects presents Göran Hugo Olsson’s revelatory THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE1967-1975, co-produced by longtime activist and actor Danny Glover. Anirresistible audiovisual collage, the film combines a treasure trove ofrecently rediscovered footage of the 1967–75 black power movement withpenetrating commentary by leading contemporary African-American voices, all setto an evocative soundtrack by Questlove of the Roots and Om’Mas. A BestEditing prize-winner at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, THE BLACK POWERMIXTAPE 1967-1975 also screened at the New Directors/New Films festival. Itwill open theatrically in late September.


At the end ofthe 1960s, numerous Swedish journalists came to the US, drawn by stories of urbanunrest and revolution. Filming for close to a decade, they gained the trust ofmany of the leaders of the black power movement—Stokely Carmichael, BobbySeale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver among them—capturing them inintimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews. Thirty years later, thislush collection of 16mm film, peppered with footage of Black Panther activitiesand B-roll images of black America,was found languishing in the basement of Swedish Television. Director Olssonbrings this mesmerizing footage to light and, integrating audio interviews withprominent African-American artists and activists who were influenced by thestruggle—from Erykah Badu to Harry Belafonte—crafts a dynamicchronicle of the birth and life of a movement.
