ANSWER Film Series
in commemoration of Black August

The year is 1966, the place, Oakland, California. The Black people living in the ghettos are tired of being harrased by the police. They react by forming a group called The Black Panther Party of Self-Defense. The Panthers introduced a number of social programmes to the ghettos, propogated for electoral participation and instructed in law and civil rights, so that blacks could help each other during
illegal arrests. \"Panther\" ventilates the question of whether change should be fought for from within, or outside of, the system. It also deals with the theory that the drug culture has been planted in the black society to make people easier to contain. It is a drama-documentary, a military spectacle about young blacks who for the first time in their lives—and in American history—find themselves armed to the teeth.1995, 124 min.
