What did you think of this film?
The summer of 1967 was a pivotal moment in modern American history when the
country was beset by growing political and social unrest: the escalation of the country’s military
engagement in the Vietnam War and decades of racial injustice and repression. The epicenters of
all this discontent and simmering rage proved to be the nation’s major cities with their systemic
discrimination, racial disparities in housing and education, and growing unemployment in
African-American communities.

Two nights after the Detroit rebellion began, a report of gunshots in the vicinity of a
National Guard staging area prompted the Detroit Police Department, the Michigan State Police,
the Michigan Army National Guard and a local private security guard to search and seize an
annex of the nearby Algiers Motel. Flouting procedural rules, several policemen forcefully and
viciously interrogated motel guests, conducting a “death game” in an attempt to intimidate
someone, anyone, into confessing. By the end of the night, three unarmed young men had been
gunned down point blank, and several other men and women were brutally beaten.
