Modeled on the 1970s ‘mixtape’ format, this feature documentary examines the evolution of the Black Power Movement from 1967-76. Combining amazing 16mm footage that had been lying undiscovered in Swedish archives for the past 30 years, with music and contemporary commentary from artists, intellectuals, musicians and activists, Mixtape presents an insightful and startlingly fresh portrait of the people, society, culture and styles that fueled a change.
