Have You Heard About the Black Panthers?

In 1970, a protest movement led by young people from disadvantaged neighborhoods in Jerusalem burst into the public consciousness with its anti-establishment and sometimes, violent actions. They became known as the “Black Panthers.” Filmmaker Nissim Mossek, who was enchanted by the enthusiasm and sincere intentions of the rebellious youngsters, followed their revolutionary course, which he saw as just and immediately began to document their dynamic activities resulting in the protest movie, “Have You Heard about the Panthers, Uncle Moshe?” Many years later, Mossek embarks on a tour in quest of the original Black Panthers and the characters who appeared in the film.
