Gala au TIFF / BFI London 2012


A feminist, a communist and an activist in the American civil rights movement, close to the Black Panthers, Angela Davis became involved in the support committee for the Soledad Brothers, three black American prisoners accused of murdering a prison guard in reprisal for the murder of one of their fellow inmates. Accused in 1970 of organizing an escape attempt and hostage-taking that resulted in the death of a California judge and 3 inmates, Angela became the most wanted woman in the United States. Arrested, imprisoned, tried and sentenced to death, she was released for lack of evidence, under pressure from international support committees whose slogan was FREE ANGELA!
