Göran Hugo Olsson / Sweden / 2011 / 92 ' / English
An artful and fresh assemblage of unseen archival footage, shot by Swedish journalists, reconstructing racial politics and the Black Power movement in the US.
The Black Power Mixtape is an archive- and music- driven documentary that examines the evolution of the Black Power Movement in the African-American community and Diaspora from 1967 to 1975. Combining startlingly fresh and meaningful 16mm footage that had been lying undiscovered in the cellar of Swedish Television for the past 30 years, with contemporary audio interviews from leading African-American artists, activists, musicians and scholars, Mixtape looks at the people, society, culture and style that fuelled a change.
