Academy Award winning director of Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty returns to tell the true story of one of the most chilling and darkest times of civil unrest in Detroit in the summer of 1967. In the midst of the chaos and violence of the Detroit Rebellion, Detroit is under intense restrictions of a city curfew. On the evening of the 25th of July 1967 during the racially charged 12th Street Riot, the police raid the Algiers Motel and three young African American men are killed. However, nine Americans remain in a deadly situation against the Michigan police, fighting for survival. Director Kathryn Bigelow takes the audience on a gripping rollercoaster to undercover what really happened during the chilling incident during one of the darkest moments of US civil unrest.
