Yolande du Luart

Documentary, 1971, 60′

It was when studying in UCLA that Luart and some colleagues decided to do this documentary. At its centre we find the philosopher Angela Davis, someone connected to the American Communist Party, to the Black Panthers and an activist for women’s rights and against racial discrimination. We follow her private life as well as political career, in a portrait that became a true revolutionary manifest.
