PROJECTION DE «Black Power MixTape»

(majoritairement en Anglais avec une brève introduction en Suédois)

Àla fin des années soixante et au début des années soixante-dix, l’intérêt
des Européens envers les mouvements des droits civils et anti-guerre
américains est à son plus haut. Avec une combinaison de naïveté et
d’engagement, des cinéastes suédois traverse l’Atlantique pour explorer le
mouvement Black Power, qui à été ignoré ou montré comme étant de terreur
violent et embryonnaire.

Alors que le mouvement des droits civils est reconnu come étant asceptisé,
le mouvement Black Power est victime de diffamation d’une part et de
fétichisation d’autre part. Son héritage ne fut pas contextualisé et son
influence sur d’autres luttes de libération est virtuellement effacé. Le
film mets l’emphase sur des moments intimes et reflectifs avec
l’intention de situéle mouvement dans son contexte domestique et
international, tout en offrant des perspectives contemporaines sur ses
succès et ses échecs,ansi que son importance aujourd’hui.

SCREENING OF "Black Power Mixtape"

(mostly english with some swedish)

At the end of the Sixties and into the early Seventies, European interest
in the US Civil Rights Movement and the US anti-war movement peaked. With
a combination of commitment and naivete, Swedish filmmakers traveled
across the Atlantic to explore the Black Power Movement, which was being
alternately ignored or portrayed in the US media as a violent, nascent
terrorist movement.

Where the earlier US Civil Rights Movement has been recognized if
somewhat sanitized, the Black Power Movement has been historically
vilified on the one hand and fetishized on the other. Its legacy has not
been properly contextualized, and its influence on other liberation
struggles and political movements has been virtually erased. The film
emphasizes intimate and reflective moments with the intention of
situating the Movement both in its domestic and international context,
while at the same time introducing contemporary perspectives on its
successes and failures, its resonance and importance today.
