Framed: The Story of Geronimo Pratt
(Dennis Mueller and Masimo Pillow, 1993)
Short film that does a great job showing FBI repression of the Black
Panther Party and Pratt's frame-up in the particular case of the
California Panthers. Unfortunately, it doesn't give enough information
on the true political potential of the BPP, instead focusing on
their struggles over the right to bear arms. That misleads viewers
into thinking the U.$. saw the BPP principally as a military threat,
which is not true. The government cared so much about the BPP because
of their power and dedication to organize the Black community, and
especially the Survival Programs, which were used to educate the
people as well as supply their immediate needs.
