Twenty-five years after the verdict in the Rodney King trial sparked several days of protests, violence and looting in Los Angeles, new feature documentary LA 92 immerses viewers in that tumultuous period. Told entirely through stunning and rarely seen archival footage, the film captures the shock, disappointment and fury felt by many following the outcomes of the highly publicized trials.
Produced by two-time Oscar winner Simon Chinn (Man on Wire) and Emmy winner Jonathan Chinn (American High) and directed by Oscar winners Dan Lindsay and TJ Martin (Undefeated), the film looks at the events of 1992 from a multitude of vantage points, bringing a fresh perspective to a pivotal moment that reverberates to this day.
