Black Power Mixtape (Tue 3 July)
The Onion Cellar continue to provide high quality events for Hanoians, this time in the form of black power documentary, Black Power Mixtape.
Black Power Mixtape examines the evolution of the Black Power Movement from 1967 to 1975. The film combines music, startling 16mm footage – which had lain undiscovered in the cellar of Swedish Television for 30 years – and contemporary audio interviews from leading African-American artists, activists, musicians and scholars such as Talib Kweli and Erykah Badu. Mixtape looks at the people, society, culture and style that fuelled a change. Utilizing an innovative format that riffs on the popular 70s mixtape format, the Black Power Mixtape is a cinematic and musical journey into the ghettos of America.
The screening has been organised by the perennially excellent people from The Onion Cellar and will be bookended by a selection of music to match the genre courtesy of DJ No Crusts. With a midnight curfew, it’s not hard to see CAMA likes early birds, so if you’re down from 7pm-8pm then you can enjoy half price Sapporo and house wine.
