“Extremely powerful when its wandering eye is trained on the moment at hand, when it’s performing a bracingly direct meditation on white violence and black fear. ”~Indiewire

Aroview: Harrowing account of the tragic five day race riot in Detroit, 1967, which lead to The Algiers Motel Incident, in which black civilians were beaten, tortured and killed by riot police.

Working from a script by regular collaborator Mark Boal (HURT LOCKER, ZERO DARK THIRTY), director Kathryn Bigelow unflinchingly navigates the complex subject matter, depicting a toxic climate of racism that remains resonant in today's troubled America.
