Black Panther a.k.a. Off the Pig (Newsreel #19)

A compelling document of the Black Panther Party leadership in 1967. This film contains a prison interview with Minister of Defense Huey P. Newton as well as an interview with Minister of Information Eldridge Cleaver, footage of the aftermath of the police assault against the Los Angeles Chapter headquarters, demonstrations to free Huey at Hutton Memorial Park and the Alameda County Court House and a recitation of the party's Ten-Point Platform by co-founder Bobby Seale. One of Newsreel's most widely distributed films, it was originally released as "Off the Pig." This short film features drawings from activist artist Emory Douglas.
Third World Newsreel’s historical Newsreel collection provides contemporary audiences with a vast archive of political documentary films chronicling the social movements of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Reviews
"The invaluable Movement documentaries Newsreel produced furthered the work of the Black Panther Party and now provide the essential visual record of the Party's early days." - Kathleen Cleaver
"An example of superior artistry in Newsreel films... We are invited to relate to the Black Panthers Party by virtue of their reasoned explanations and the fresh, lively cadence of the film." - Bill Nichols, Film Scholar and Critic
