Life is a Saxophone

In Life Is A Saxophone, esteemed poet Kamau Daáood looks at survival as an oral poet in an electronic age. Filmed in 1984, the documentary includes a live concert at the popular Watts Towers Arts Center in Los Angeles, with interpretations of his work by musicians Billy Higgins, Roberto Miguel Miranda, Dadisi Komolafe and Nirankhar Singh Khalsa, dancer Lula Washington, martial artist Dadisi Sanyika and portrait artist Gale Fulton Ross.

Neshoba

Neshoba is an award winning documentary film about events and attitudes in Neshoba County, Mississippi, 40 years after the 1964 Mississippi civil rights workers murders.

The Black Power Mixtape

The Black Power Mixtape 1967-1975 mobilizes a treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish journalists who came to the US drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution. Gaining access to many of the leaders of the Black Power Movement—Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver among them—the filmmakers captured them in intimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews.
