Black History Month: Black Panthers - Spirit of 68

Black History Month: Black Panthers - Spirit of 68

In honour of Black History Month and as part of the BFI Spirit of 68 season, join us for our main feature Agnes Varda’s 1968 film Black Panthers.

Varda filmed this vivid 16mm snapshot of the Black Panther Party in Oakland, during the height of the protests over the incarceration of Huey P Newton. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to get an insight into the revolutionary group that was the Black Panthers.

Before the film we'll be showing a selection of shorts from the Britain on Film: Black Britain collection as well as a short film from local filmmaker Khadijah Carberry, who will be there on the night to answer any questions!
