Free Angela And All Political Prisoners Synopsis
Free Angela is a gripping historic account of the events that catapulted a young University of California philosophy professor into a controversial political icon in the turbulent late 1960ís. Angela Davis joins the Communist Party, protests with the Black Panthers, and becomes a principle spokesperson for the burgeoning prison reform movement. As a result, she finds herself Fighting to keep her job, and in the national media spotlight characterized by her many detractors as a dangerous subversive menace, and by her supporters as a strong leader challenging authority and boldly advocating for ďPower to All People.Ē

So on August 7th, 1970, when Angela is implicated in the politically motivated kidnapping and murder of a judge in a brazen daylight shootout at the Marin County, CA courthouse, the nation wonders and Newsweek magazine asks: ďWhat would prompt the daughter of the black bourgeoisie to take a desperate turn to terrorism?Ē

Angela flees California, convinced she will not be given a fair trial and is placed on the FBIís 10 Most Wanted list. After a national manhunt she is captured two months later in New York City. Charged with murder, kidnapping and conspiracy, Angela is put on trial in one of the most sensational court cases of its time. After a two-year legal battle, an all white jury acquits her on all charges in 1972.

Itís an edge-of-your seat thriller told for the first time by Angela and others who lived through the events firsthand. The interviews recount the politics that led her to challenge authority and spur a worldwide movement for her freedom that cemented Angela Davis, and her signature Afro hairstyle, as an iconic symbol of this still relevant political and social movement ó the right to challenge the system.

Free Angela is a must see documentary! A candid and powerful account of the tumultuous times and a woman who challenges a society that is afraid of all that she represents. Filled with elements of intrigue, suspense and conspiracies, the film delivers by empowering and inspiring diverse international audiences with its message of hope and redemption.

You know her name. Now, you will finally know her story.

At the moment, I could care less who gets to play Peter Parker next. The five mentioned actors sound fine. Pick either of them. Pick someone else. Because while I think itís important to find a talented actor to eventually play Peter Parker in Marvelís first pure swing at an MCU Spider-Man movie, I think this casting decision is easily the fifth or sixth most important thing the studios need to be worrying about.
