Grace Lee Boggs

The L.A. Film Festival is now in full swing, kicking off last night, and continuing our week of exclusives from films playing the fest, we've got cut from score to the Documentary Competition title "American Revolutionary: The Evolution Of Grace Lee Boggs."

Directed by Grace Lee (no relation, but they met on the helmer's earlier project "The Grace Lee Story" about the many people who share that name), the film chronciles Boggs' lifetime spent battling for labor and civil rights, while getting involved in Black Power, feminist, Asian American and environmental justice movements and much more. But her role in the African-American movement is one of the most unlikely and powerful, with folks like Angela Davis, Bill Moyers, Bill Ayers, Ruby Dee, Ossie Davis, Danny Glover and more all speaking to her importance.

It sounds like a fascinating doc, and helping to texture the film is award-winning composer Vivek Maddala's score. This exclusive cut, "Malcolm X and World Revolution," is nicely investigative and triumphant, and seems to capture the overall tone of the documentary quite well.

"American Revolutionary" premieres at the L.A. Film Festival on Sunday, June 16th at 1:30 PM at the American Airlines Theatre/Regal 11.
