In The Black Power Mixtape 1967– 1975 (100 min.), director Göran Olsson collages historical footage and contemporary interviews. Olsson overlays film shot by Swedish journalists in the 1960s and ’70s—of revolutionaries like Angela Davis, Stokely Carmichael, and Bobby Seale—with commentaries from current artists and activists. The short film Mayday (13 min., 1969), produced by Newsreel Films, will precede the feature film. May Day documents a May 1, 1969, Black Panther rally with speeches from Kathleen Cleaver, Bobby Seale, and others, along with footage of both the police raid on Panther headquarters and the Panther’s Breakfast for the Children program. (35mm/Digital Presentation)
