directed by Göran Hugo Olsson, SE/US, 100 min., Swedish with English and Czech subtitles
At the turn of the 1960s and 1970s Swedish television reporters documented the Afro-American Rights Movement. They tried to understand why the battle they admire in Sweden is being called terrorism in the USA. They shot unique footage including interviews with Stokely Carmichel, Angela Davis, Huey P. Newton and Eldridge Cleaver – all of which had sadly remained in the archives.
Göran Hugo Olsson, a master of contemporary editing found footage documentary uses the material to tell the story of the Black Power movement through the eyes of a distant country.
