The Black Power Mixtape 1967–1975
Runtime (100 min)
Thursday, May 4th, 2017
Start time: 11:00 AM

THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE 1967-1975 mobilizes a treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish journalists who came to the US drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution. Gaining access to many of the leaders of the Black Power Movement—Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver among them—the filmmakers captured them in intimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews.

Persepolis
Runtime (96 min)
Thursday, May 11th, 2017
Start Time: 11:00 AM
Persepolis is a 2007 French-Iranian animated biographical film based on Marjane Satrapi's autobiographical graphic novel of the same name. The story follows a young girl as she comes of age against the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution. The film was co-winner of the Jury Prize at the 2007 Cannes Film Festival. The film was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature.

Each program includes museum admission. Please RSVP to Dave Sandoval at dsandoval@sfmoma.org and indicate the number of students and chaperones in your group. Space is limited and we will accept RSVPs on a first-come, first-served basis.

We hope to see you at SFMOMA for this exciting program!
