A fascinating and intimate look into the lives, beliefs, and practices of the Black Panthers during their Free Huey rally in 1968. French filmmaker Agnés Varda brings a foreign and somewhat neutral perspective to the party's struggle. Allowing Huey P. Newton's own appeal for freedom on screen, Black Panthers is an unmissable memento of a historic and powerful movement in the United States.
