The verdict in the Rodney King trial on April 29th 1992 sparked several days of devastating protest, violence and looting in Los Angeles. Twenty-five years later, this visceral and unflinching film examines that tumultuous period entirely through archival footage from the period, offering a fresh perspective on historic events which powerfully resonate today.

National Geographic Documentary Films presents A Lightbox production.

"A remarkable commentary on overlapping media, and an immersive history of the moment."

Variety – Sonia Saraiya 13th April 2017
