Tilda Swinton never fails us, she keeps on bringing us surprises with her impeccable acting and image. This time she is playing the mother of a school child who behaved like a sociopath and killed the other mates at school in the film We Need To Talk About Kevin.

A film by Göran Hugo Olsson, The Black Power Mixtape is a brilliantly edited montage of lost 16mm footage shot by Swedish photographers in America from 1967-75; combined with audio interviews from some of today's leading African-American artists, activists, musicians and scholars; and set to a music by Grammy-winner Questlove. A special screening at MoMA is being held by our friends over at React to Film
