In the summer of 1967, Detroit’s African American population was at the mercy of a corrupt and racist white police force; discrimination impacted every aspect of their lives. The community was at breaking point, and a police raid on an unlicensed bar became the trigger for a city-wide riot, with Detroit erupting into one of the largest citizen uprisings in U.S. history.
Re-uniting director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal, the Oscar-winning team behind Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker, DETROIT zeroes in on one pivotal event during the civil unrest – the Algiers Motel Incident – a motel raid which spiralled out of control as police detained and interrogated guests, ending in tragedy.
A brilliant ensemble cast including John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, and break-out star Algee Smith, deliver heartfelt, dedicated portrayals of the real-life people before, during and after this defining moment in their lives. This gripping, intimate film is essential viewing – an urgent recreation of history with heartbreaking parallels to the present.
