Black Panthers

Regie Agnès Varda
Frankreich, USA, 1968
Dokumentarfilm, Kurzfilm

Darum geht's

Dieser Film wurde im Sommer 1968 in Oakland, Kalifornien bei Treffen der Black Panther Party gedreht. Auf diesen Treffen sollte Huey Newton, einer der Anführer, befreit und sein Prozess in eine politische Debatte verwandelt werden. Auf jeden Fall gelang es ihnen, Amerikas Aufmerksamkeit zu erregen.

Black Panthers Regie Agnès Varda
Even now this film is a vital primer on local political history, by default a sobering comparative account of so-called progress since it was made, and all the more engaging for Varda’s palpable eagerness to understand a uniquely American (and Californian) strain of activist pushback against authoritarian oppression. Whether or not she regretted missing out on the political upheavals in France in 1968, she certainly seized the opportunity to broaden her perspective here.

It is a casually electrifying account of Black Panther Party rallies and demonstrations. The Panthers’ physical bearing and political analysis made them the big story that season on the Bay Area left (or so it seemed to me as an undergraduate new to California with a summer job in the Ramparts magazine mailroom), and Ms. Varda nailed it.

More conventionally structured, but equally inquisitive and exceedingly urgent, the following year’s Black Panthers forgoes the playful formal measures of Uncle Yanco in favor of observational energy and objective tact.
