A Huey P Newton Story

An intimate portrait of Huey P. Newton, the late co-founder of the Black Panther Party. Director Spike Lee and Roger Guenveur Smith bring Newton's thoughts, philosophies, history and flavour to life. Adapted from Smith's Obie Award-winning off-Broadway solo performance of the same name, Lee shot the film before a live audience, using his signature blend of film and archival footage to capture Newton's 'inner mind'. The film was nominated for two NAACP Image Awards and won the prestigious Peabody Award.
