THE BLACK POWER MIXTAPE 1967-1975 mobilizes a treasure trove of 16mm material shot by Swedish journalists who came to the US drawn by stories of urban unrest and revolution. Gaining access to many of the leaders of the Black Power Movement (Stokely Carmichael, Bobby Seale, Angela Davis and Eldridge Cleaver), the filmmakers captured them in intimate moments and remarkably unguarded interviews.

One Fine Day is an investigation into modest individual actions, their astonishing outcome and the often severe personal consequences. The documentary consists of portraits of six people from different cultures and religions who all, through a small non-violent act, have had a significant and positive influence on society. In the film we meet a young Burmese monk, a Chilean student, a German pastor, a young Iraqi woman, an American former athlete and a Chinese youngster.

The following video is an excerpt that follows Maria Jesus Sanhueza, a student protester during the 2006 Penguin Revolution in Chile. The full film can be found here.
