MVFF Member Admission: $15
General Admission: $25
(“Pay What You Can” tickets avaliable at the door)Kathleen.jpg
Pre-Screening cocktails with the guests & reserved seating: $100

Discussion to follow with director Stanley Nelson and film subject Professor Kathleen Cleaver, introduced by Professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

henry.jpgAmerican culture was transforming itself at an unprecedented rate during the 1960s, and many embraced the possibility of imminent civil uprising. With a fierce commitment to systemic change, the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense became a beacon for necessary social rebellion.

Director Stanley Nelson, whose film Freedom Summer was a highlight of last year’s MVFF Summer Film Series, seamlessly weaves accounts from police, journalists, detractors, Party members, and FBI informants and former agents, for a beautifully rich perspective on the Black Panthers’ vast influence.
