Black Panthers – Huey!

The protest against the Vietnam War and against racism in the United States united the American and international protest movements. French directors like Godard, Marker, and Varda shot films about the youth rebellion. Thus, one cannot necessarily equate the vehement criticism of United States policy with anti-Americanism, it was rather a fight with America against America (see also the program They Won’t Give Peace a Chance). Black Panthers—Huey! documents the struggle of the Black Panthers after Huey Newton’s arrest. [The movie is in a file together with Black Panther Newsreel; see above.]
