The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975
Film Still Highlights from The
Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975
Curated by Yona Backer and the film’s director Göran Hugo Olsson.
Drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution, an intrepid team of Swedish reporters came to the US in the late 1960s. Gaining access to many of the leaders of the Black Power Movement and Black Panther Party, they captured candid, intimate moments in rare footage and interviews stretching over the course of nearly a decade. Thirty years later, their cache of pristine 16mm film was found undisturbed in the basement of Swedish Television and transformed into a 2011 Sundance award winning feature documentary: Swedish filmmaker Göran Hugo Olsson’s The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975, produced by Story AB (Stockholm) and co-produced by Louverture Films (NY) and Swedish Television.
An exhibition of the same name, The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 – featuring medium and large-format, color and black-and-white photographic film stills, never-before-seen original documentary footage not included in the film, and ephemera.
