*Black Power Mixtape 1967-75 Goran Olsson (2011)*

Based on footage shot by Swedish journalists in the late 1960s and early '70s to document the Black Power movement, the film weaves scenes of the Harlem, Brooklyn and Oakland streets with interviews of movment leaders Eldridge Cleaver, Stokely Carmichael, Angela Davis and numerous others. Recalling her original interview by Swedish journalist Goran Hugo Olsson, Davis noted he was “the first journalist to interview me from jail. I was asked by him and by everyone else at the time'Why do you advocate violence?' For some reason we were (considered) the ones responsible for all of the violence of that era.”
