SATURDAY MATINÉE: Panther (1995)

Panther is our Saturday Matinée feature presentation.

Black Panthers are pretty popular in the cinemas right now but back in 1995, a movie about the BPP was released. Directed by Mario Van Peebles and based on his father’s novel and screenplay, the film chronicles the Black Panther Party. The film is notable for its strong cast: Angela Bassett (who also stars in Black Panther), Bobby Brown, and Chris Rock all feature. The soundtrack was dope too starring the likes of Aaliyah, Amel Larrieux, Mary J. Blige, Blackstreet, Biggie Smalls, Busta Rhymes… you get the gist – it’s a black ass soundtrack.
