The Screen Guide

Inspired by their stylish African American brothers, the genesis of the Black Panther's Brisbane Chapter is recounted through the eyes of Marlene Cummins, who looks back on the best and worst experiences of this controversial Aboriginal group in the police state of Queensland, in 1971. This unflinching documentary is a journey through the underbelly of Black experience in the volatile period of the 60s and 70s, from an insider's perspective of a Black Panther woman. Directed by multi-award winning filmmaker Rachel Perkins and produced by Blackfella Films, the company behind the documentary series First Australians, the telemovie Mabo and landmark drama series Redfern Now.
