Synopsis

Quand, en 1966, à Oakland en Californie, Bobby Seale et Huey Newton fondent les Black Panthers, il s'agit pour eux de créer un groupe de défense des droits des Noirs, très discriminés dans cet Etat et en butte aux violences policières. Des militants de la première heure racontent les débuts du groupe, ses actions, ses coups d'éclat, comme l'irruption au parlement de Californie d'une trentaine de Black Panthers armés. Le courage et le culot dont ses membres font preuve assurent la renommée du parti et attirent de nombreux adhérents. Dès lors, la croissance est rapide. Au moment où le mouvement cherche à s'ancrer davantage dans la communauté noire, Edgar Hoover, le patron du FBI, prend le parti pour cible.

William Peters follows Jane Elliott's conversely controversial and lauded schoolroom exercise of dividing an otherwise homogenous group of elementary school kids by their eye color. It was a demonstration of prejudice and discrimination meant to teach the students about the unfairness of racism, developed as a response to the shooting of Martin Luther King in April 1968. The film records Elliott in 1970 while conducting the exercise for the third time.

Alongside the southernmost urban centre in Africa, separating city from ocean, lays a very special strip of land. Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and Signal Hill on the other, the Sea Point Promenade – and the public swimming pools in its centre – forms a space unlike any in Cape Town. Once a bastion of Apartheid exclusivity, it is nowadays unique in its apparently easy mix of age, race, gender, religion, wealth status and sexual orientation. Somehow this space has become one where all South Africans feel they have a right to exist, and where the possibility of happiness in a divided world doesn't seem unfeasible. But what is the reality of those coming here? How do people see their past, their present in this space and their future in this country?
