From the Academy Award winning director of ‘The Hurt Locker’ and ‘Zero Dark Thirty’, this is the gripping story of one of the darkest moments during the civil unrest that rocked Detroit in the summer of '67.
Amidst the chaos of the Detroit Rebellion, with the city under curfew and as the Michigan National Guard patrolled the streets, three young African American men are murdered.
What Kathryn Bigelow does - incomparably - is put us in that room with those people at that moment. She induces a feeling of powerlessness that's beyond our capacity to imagine on our own, and she keeps it going.
