Dir Mario Van Peebles
With Marcus Chong, Kadeem Hardison, Courtney B Vance, Angela Bassett
Panther revisits the history behind a seminal 1960s political movement; the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense were hailed as heroes by many, yet hunted by the FBI as enemies of the state. Mario Van Peebles, son of 1970s radical filmmaker Melvin Van Peebles, adapted his father’s novel for the screen, spotlighting co-founders Huey P Newton (Chong) and Bobby Seale (Vance).
