Swedish television sent reporters to the US during the heady days of the Black Panthers and anti-Vietnam-war protests, and this endlessly fascinating paste-up documentary by Göran Hugo Olsson is the result — a kaleidoscope of grassroots social ferment, pieced together from broadcast material found in the archives. The Swedes spent most of their time in New York City and the Bay Area, it seems, and they listened to everybody who was anybody: Stokely Carmichael, Angela Davis, Eldridge Cleaver, filmmaker Emile de Antonio, et al. Olsson then adds brand new commentary by survivors of the era, plus such cultural commentators as singer Erykah Badu, hip-hop artist Talib Kweli, and Abiodun Oyewole of The Last Poets. A remarkable record of a still-controversial era in American history, with the added blessing of an open-minded, “overseas” perspective. Written and directed by Olsson (96 min.)
