Free Angela and All Political Prisoners

Series: Portland Black Film Festival

Presented by the Portland Black Film Festival.

FREE ANGELA AND ALL POLITICAL PRISONERS (2012) Shola Lynch’s documentary on activist Angela Davis, an outspoken UCLA professor whose affiliation with the Communist Party and the Black Panthers landed her on the FBI’s Ten Most Wanted list, while challenging our perceptions of political freedom in America. From her early years as a student, to her highly publicized arrest following the brazen hostage-taking and murder of Marin County judge Harold Haley in California, Lynch’s film leaves no stone unturned as it explores every remarkable detail of Davis’ life, and allows her to tell her own stories through a series of intimate interviews.
