Composed entirely of archival footage, the mysterious Black Panther film, The Party, that was posted to YouTube on June 30, is as much a scene poem as a documentary. Mixing retrospective commentary with contemporary news reports, photos, and video, The Party provides a scattered but comprehensive two-hour glimpse into one of America's most important political activism groups. For anyone broken-hearted about the state of racism in America right now, it's an invaluable primer for the pervasive violence that has permeated an unjust nation since the very beginning. Watch the film above.
