In this searing drama, Oscar winning director Kathryn Bigelow takes on the tumultuous events of urban America, circa 1967. While tackling the historical roots of the difficult relations between minorities and police, she focuses in on a single slice of the Detroit uprising in 1967, an event that became known as the "Algiers Motel incident". Into this maelstrom we experience a microcosm of viciousness bred out of misunderstanding. This is ultimately a violent, but powerful film whose meaning resonates right through five decades to the 21st century. As one critic put it, "she could have made a movie about Ferguson...instead she chose Detroit."
