One of the most anticipated documentaries of the year, Free Angela and All Political Prisoners asks the audience the question: Who is Angela Davis?
Documentary filmmaker Shola Lynch’s documentary chronicles the life of young college professor Davis, and how her social activism implicates her in a botched kidnapping attempt that ends with a shootout, four dead, and her name on the FBI’s 10 most wanted list.
The audience also gains insight into how this fierce and proud sister who while in jail, was openly supported by icons like The Rolling Stones (who wrote ‘Sweet Black Angel’ for her) and John Lennon who wrote “Angela” in tribute.
An international movement sprung up in all parts of the world! “Free Angela” protests raged globally with the battle cry spreading like wildfire. Free Angela, Free Angela . . . You know her name. Know her story.
Free Angela and All Political Prisoners in theaters April 5th!!!!
