In this fact-based drama taking place during the summer of 1967, rioting and civil unrest starts to tear apart the city of Detroit, Michigan. A report of gunshots prompts the Detroit Police Department, the Michigan State Police and the Michigan Army National Guard to search and seize an annex of the nearby Algiers Motel. Several police officers start to flout procedure by forcefully and viciously interrogating guests to get a confession. By the end of the night, three unarmed men are gunned down while several others are brutally beaten. Following the screening, join us for an In Conversation session with Vanguard Award honoree John Boyega.
