Change was coming to America, and the fault lines could no longer be ignored. The Black Panther Party was born in Oakland in 1966, and this is the first feature-length documentary to explore its significance to the broader American culture, its cultural and political awakening for black people, and the painful lessons wrought when a movement derails. Rare archival footage is combined with the voices of people who were there: police, FBI informants, journalists, white supporters and detractors, and Black Panthers who remained loyal to the party and those who left it. Featuring Kathleen Cleaver, Elaine Brown, Emory Douglas, Jamal Joseph and many others. Writer/Director: Stanley Nelson. (US 2015) 116 min.
