Black Liberation (aka Silent Revolution)

Dir. Edouard De Laurot
1967, 37min, Digital

 

Made in collaboration with Malcolm X, this rarely-seen, powerfully propulsive call to arms—“an authentic outcry coming from the black people of America,” as it describes itself—layers revolutionary text (narrated by Ossie Davis) with gritty, shot-on-the-streets-of-New York footage of African-American struggle.

US premiere of a new scan.

 
Off the Pig! (aka Black Panther)

Dir. Third World Newsreel
1968, 15min, Digital

 

One of the first films made about the Black Panthers features interviews with Eldridge Cleaver and an imprisoned Huey Newton, footage of the party’s bullet-riddled Los Angeles headquarters in the aftermath of a police raid, and cofounder Bobby Seale laying out the original Ten-Point Program.

 
 
 
A Tribute To Malcolm X

Dir. Madeline Anderson
1967, 14min, Digital

 

Madeline Anderson offers an illuminating perspective on the revolutionary icon through revealing archival footage and an interview with his widow, Betty Shabazz.
