Riotsville

May 1 @ 4:30 PM PDT

Riotsville, USA

A treasure trove of archival footage taken from US military recordings and 1960s broadcast TV forms the foundation for Sierra Pettengill’s stunning essay film, a piercing interrogation into the origins of American police militarization. Through meticulous and creative assemblage of images and sounds, it charts the machinations of the Kerner Commission, LBJ’s task force on civil disorders, and the creation of model towns used to train police and military in techniques to pacify antiwar protestors.
