LA 92

When: Sun., April 23, 3 p.m. 2017

The harrowing video of Rodney King’s beating by the LAPD sparked a tumultuous trial, but that was just the beginning. The four officers involved were acquitted, triggering protests and violence that has eerie echoes in the Charlotte protests last summer. Drawing on rarely seen archival footage, this doc is vital viewing for those old enough to remember the L.A. riots of ’92, and for those young enough to grow up in the shadow of those events.

Price: Free.
