A HUEY P. NEWTON STORY 2001, Starz, 86 min, USA, Dir: Spike Lee

Born in a small town in Louisiana, later moving with his family to Oakland as an infant, Huey P. Newton grew up to be the co-founder of the Black Panther Party, which he led for more than two decades. Director Spike Lee and actor-playwright Roger Guenveur Smith collaborate for the seventh time to bring to life Newton's thoughts, philosophies, history and distinct personality. Adapted from Smith's Obie Award-winning, Off-Broadway solo performance of the same name, Lee’s bio-doc uses his signature mix of film and archival footage to capture the thoughts of this revolutionary political leader. Screening format: Beta SP
