The Pink Mountaintops

Detailed product description

This powerful documentary chronicles the injustice exacted on three members of the Black Panther party, incarcerated at the Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola, Louisiana. Director/Co-producer/editor Jimmy O'Halligan somehow gathers an overabundance of information and concisely packs it into a little under two hours of remarkable and, surprisingly irresistible, commentary and history about this harrowing situation. Listening to the empathetic 2005 Noble Peace nominee Yuri Kochiyama, a Japanese woman forced into a concentration camp in World War II commenting on J.Edgar Hoover's position on the Panthers, or the eloquent and highly informed Dr. Terry, Kupers Ph. D., author of Prison Madness, giving his perspective, is a smart juxtaposition to the tough political words that permeate the pastiche of interviews with other sympathizers . The byproduct of this spirited defense of these men is the obvious indictment of the prison system making The Angola 3: Black Panthers and the Last Slave Plantation a serious forum on human rights. The eloquent Geronimo (ji Jaga) Pratt, Minister of Defense of the Black Panther Party, explains how the government creates "images, shapes, illusions" that are based on lies, deception and manipulation. The movie is an intense study of how some people are made targets of the state, the war that is waged on the oppressed human spirit, and how that spirit can strengthen itself and find legitimate support. The viewer gets a distinct definition of the phrase "Power to the People" which John Lennon turned into a pop song, an ideology that comes to life at the film's conclusion when different individuals repeat "Free the Angola 3, support all political prisoners." The DVD contains an intriguing music video as well as the film trailer.
