11-02-2018 12:00:00 11-02-2018 12:00:00 America/New_York Black Panthers + Murs Murs | 3:45 PM Agnès Varda BLACK PANTHERS (1968, 28 min, 16mm-to-DCP. With H. Rap Brown, Stokely Carmichael, Eldridge Cleaver, Huey P. Newton, and Bobby Seale.) & MURS MURS (1980, 82 min, 35mm-to-DCP. In English and French with English subtitles.) Guided by the dynamism of two very different subcultures, Agnès Varda shares her fondness for the Golden State in this double feature. MURS MURS is an amusingly inquisitive look at the murals that adorn a cityscape, an outsider's homage to the eccentricities of Los Angeles. Years earlier, Varda had stationed herself at the front lines of the Black Power movement in Oakland; BLACK PANTHERS documents members of the titular Party as they protest against the imprisonment of activist Huey P. Newton. Both films are a testament to Varda's New Wave sensibility as well as her embrace of spontaneity and chance, finding expression here through the documentary form. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=279651 Anthology Film Archives Anthology Film Archives
