Formed in 1967, the Newsreel film collective was dedicated to chronicling and analyzing current events. In their time, they produced more than three dozen films throughout the US and abroad. By working directly with the Black Panthers, Newsreel was able to explore realities often ignored by traditional media outlets, while producing documents that the Panthers could use in organizing their own communities. The results speak for themselves and stand as true testimonials to the spirit of community self-defense and political savvy the Panthers are celebrated--and were targeted--for. For the first time on DVD, we're proud to present three acclaimed Newsreel Films on the Black Panther Party: Off the Pig, Mayday, and Repression. Accompanying these three Newsreel films is a massive quantity of rare and exclusive materials culled from Roz Payne's extensive collection of FBI documents, correspondence, and interviews with Panthers and their supporters. It's all here, the government-sponsored repression, the trials, exile, triumph, and reunion. These materials--over 12 hours--are crucial to understanding the Black Panther Party and their legacy. This Four-Disc Set Features: Disc One: Three Newsreel Films, Interviews with Field Marshall Donald Cox, Footage from 35th Anniversary Reunion. Disc Two: Interviews with Former FBI Agents, Footage from the Wheelock Academic Conference on the BPP. Disc Three: Interviews with various movement lawyers discussing Panther cases. Disc Four: Interviews with Newsreel members, extras from the Roz Payne Archives. A portion of the proceeds from this project will go to support Black Panther prisoners through Books Behind Bars, the Jericho Movement, and the Human Rights Research Fund.
