Consisting exclusively of archive footage from news crews and private citizens, LA 92 is a chilling and uniquely cinematic look at the Los Angeles riots which shook America to its core in April and May of 1992. But as morbidly fascinating as their unflinching portrayal of this complete societal collapse is, Dan Lindsay and T.J. Martin's greatest achievement is making their audiences understand why it happened – and why it was doomed to happen. A close relative of Ezra Edelman's monumental OJ: MADE IN AMERICA, LA 92 is a must for anyone who wants to understand race relations in modern-day America.
