This was a really fun project for the documentary film Dope is Death by Mia Donovan. The doc follows the story of Dr. Mutulu Shakur (step dad to Tupac), the black panthers, and the young lords as they set up the first acupuncture detox program in the US in 1973. It was of course was deemed to dangerous to exist and came under harsh attack.The first image is the official poster for the film, but I included some of my favorite versions I made before we landed on the right one.It's now available to stream in the US as part of Vice's documentary film series "The Short List" with Suroosh Alvi.
