Synopsis

In the early hours of July 23rd 1967, a police raid at a popular unlicensed club in Detroit, Michigan resulted in the 12th Street Riot, one of the largest race riots in American history, which would last for five days. On the second day, police officer Philip Krauss shoots a suspected looter in the back, killing him instantly. Despite his superior recommending murder charges, officer Krauss is allowed to remain on active duty until further notice. On day three, a gathering at the Algiers Motel quickly escalates into violence, after a starting pistol is used to fire towards the police offers patrolling the streets. Consequently, Officer Philip Krauss – who was part of the crowd – leads an assault on the building and those inside it, in this brutal and tragic reconstruction of the infamous events.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
