Detroit 15

Detroit


The latest gripping film from Oscar®-winning director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) chronicles the story of the 1967 Detroit riots, which became one of the most violent revolts in US history.

When a shot is heard at the Algiers Motel, armed police converge on the area and begin a standoff with those inside (the majority of whom are young black men). Everyone wants to survive the night, but as tensions escalate the situation deteriorates into chaos. Starring John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, Will Poulter and John Krasinski, Detroit is a timely and powerful reminder of how little has changed in fifty years.
