Fascinating time capsule from Varda. Interesting to see the community together and in one voice. Panthers long misunderstood and so interesting to hear the points and the female perspective. However, some of the narration comes across as politically biased (probably rightly so) and flaws the work as a true documentary.
Important piece of history captured. This should be shown in schools because there is much misrepresentation today of what the Black Panther Party was and what it stood for. The man reciting the Ten Points, Huey P. Newton's words and the music capture the spirit of those times.
Most revealing reaction from white Texan tourist, when he was questioned about the protests for the liberation of Newton he replies: “they want us to liberate him.” (24’ 34’’) His answer clearly shows his complete identification with the police force and the establishment, and the separation between these and the black community.
