Agnés Varda, 1968, 28 minutes

During her time in California in the late 60s, French New Wave pioneer Agnés Varda made three films, inspired by the politics and youth culture of Los Angeles and San Francisco. Here she turns her camera on an Oakland demonstration against the imprisonment of activist and Black Panthers cofounder Huey P. Newton. Empathic and perceptive, Black Panthers is a powerful political statement.
