Synopsis

From 1967 to 1975, fueled by curiosity and naïveté, Swedish journalists traversed the ocean to film the black power movement in America. The Black Power Mixtape 1967–1975 mobilizes a mosaic of images, music, and narration to chronicle the movement’s evolution.

Our take

Later finished by a new generation of filmmakers after a goldmine of footage was discovered from this turbulent time in American race relations, The Black Power Mixtape is a revelatory portrait of what should have been but a moment in history, yet this period has sadly not yet passed. Essential.
