Free Angela and All Political Prisoners movie scene

The tumultuous life of Angela Davis is chronicled in Free Angela and All Political Prisoners.

The 2013 documentary Free Angela and All Political Prisoners is an historic account of the tumultuous events that befell African American activist, writer and scholar Angela Davis and her cohorts in the late 1960s.

The film tells the dramatic story of how Angela Davis—a professor at UCLA who led the Communist party USA and had close relations with the Black Panther Party—was tried and acquitted of suspected involvement in the Soledad brothers’ August, 1970 abduction of Judge Harold Haley of Marin Country, California, which resulted in a shootout, four dead, and her name on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list.

Directed by Shola Lynch, the unrated Free Angela received a limited release to theaters in the U.S. in April, 2013 following its September, 2012 premiere at the Toronto Film Festival.

No bonus features have been announced for the DVD.
