Angela: Angela Davis, that is. At the start of filming in 1969 she was an unknown philosophy professor at UCLA, but by the time the committed communist was imprisoned shortly thereafter, she was already an icon. The film shows Davis both in public and private: at seminars, at demonstrations for political prisoners and the Black Panthers and at her desk at home. Free my brother, my sister, my people! (bik)
Yolande du Luart was born in 1932. While studying film at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), she and fellow students made the documentary Angela – Portrait of a Revolutionary, for which they filmed the civil rights activist who was also a philosophy lecturer at UCLA at the time. After the FBI became aware of the group's film work, du Luart returned to France to finish the film. It was screened at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, amongst other venues. In the following years, Luart worked as a translator. She now lives in Trouville-sur-Mer in Normandy.
