Oscar-winning director Kathryn Bigelow, working with screenwriter Mark Boal (Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty), powerfully dramatizes a little known story that resonates still today. Set during the Detroit’s 1967 12 th Street riots and based on extensive research and interviews, young unarmed people incidentally caught up in the chaos of the night had their lives upended or destroyed when they took refuge at the seedy Algiers Motel. This gripping and compelling narrative contributes to the current conversation about racial injustice and police brutality.
