Doors 7:30 pm. FREE EVENT!
When the Los Angeles riots/uprising/civil unrest exploded in 1992, images of destruction beamed across the globe with little context as to why these events had occurred. TV news focused on African Americans, Latinos, and Koreans as both victims and perpetrators of violence, and footage of the “first multicultural riots” locked each group within a stereotype. Twenty-five years after, Grace Lee’s “K-Town ’92 Reporters” revisits these images that profoundly shaped our understanding of race in America. Filmmaker Grace Lee in attendance. FREE EVENT!
This screening is part of ACTION! Cinema as Sanctuary, a free summer series presenting political documentary films and workshops. ACTION! is made possible with the support of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
