Home / Now Showing / “Black Panthers” / EASY RIDER
“Black Panthers”, 1970, Dir: Agnès Varda, 28 Minutes, Janus Films, France.
Agnès Varda turns her camera on an Oakland demonstration against the imprisonment of activist and Black Panthers cofounder Huey P. Newton. In addition to evincing Varda’s fascination with her adopted surroundings and her empathy, this perceptive short is also a powerful political statement.
EASY RIDER, 1969, Dir: Dennis Hopper, 96 Minutes, Sony Repertory, USA.
Dennis Hopper’s directorial debut is a simultaneous celebration of and elegy to the counterculture. Two lone-wolf bikers make a killing on a drug deal and, to commemorate their new financial independence, decide to roll cross-country on a tour of southwestern America. What they find are exhilarating open spaces, free-love communes and people living off the land. But they also find bad acid trips and a mortally dangerous climate of prejudice. Starring Peter Fonda (“Captain America”), Hopper, Jack Nicholson, and featuring Karen Black, Toni Basil, and more.
