Story


"Free Angela & All Political Prisoners" is a feature-length documentary about Angela Davis and the high stakes crime, political movement, and trial that catapults the 26 year-old newly appointed philosophy professor at the University of California at Los Angeles into a seventies revolutionary political icon. Nearly forty years later, and for the first time, Angela Davis speaks frankly about the actions that branded her as a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide political movement for her freedom.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a solid tribute a woman who was one of many vital pieces of the civil rights movement, and an insightful study of a time when the American identity - both politically and socially - was being drastically reshaped..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]
“..focuses less on the facts of the Angela Davis case than on efforts to free her..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..although "Free Angela" approaches hagiography, Ms. Davis supplies a certain spark simply with her presence..”
by Nicolas Rapold [New York Times]
