Exposing myths & misconceptions

Thank you for your support!

As we head into the distribution stage of the film, we must raise $20,000 for editing the trailer, designing the posters and promotional materials, legal fees, festival submission fees and licensing images. For example, there are 7 seconds of archival footage of Huey Newton that must be licensed at a cost of $800! As independent filmmakers we rely on our supporters to help make this film a reality.
