Black Panther Party

In anticipation of RiverRun International Film Festival in Winston-Salem the staff of Triad City Beat looks at a new documentary about the Black Panther Party by Stanley Nelson, named the festival’s Master of Cinema this year, and talks to filmmakers Jeff Reichert and Farihah Zaman about their new documentary about Hurricane Sandy, while logging 15 reviews of films that will screen over the next 11 days. It’s all in this week’s cover story package.
