A 90-minute documentary exploring the Los Angeles riot for PBS / Frontline.
Broadcast April 27, 1993
One year after Los Angeles’ three days and nights of beatings, looting, and burning, how well do we understand what happened there-and why? In this documentary, Los Angeles is revisited to explore those questions through the eyes of five people who have thought and written about the city from the perspectives of its different communities, races, and classes.
