The timely subject of revolutionary struggle and the exotic record of films intended for a Swedish TV audience propelled the recent success of The Black Power Mixtape 1967–1975 by Göran Hugo Olsson (2011). The film exemplifies the processes of selection and re-enactment that are immanent to compilation aesthetics, while drawing attention to the overlooked archive memory of public television.
