Attica

Attica

Rarely seen but increasingly essential, Firestone’s documentary tracks the 1971 movement of inmates to revolt against their constabulary as their calls for reform continue to go unheard. Through interviews with those discharged in the years since and incredible footage from the ground, we see a cry for change be violently suppressed, reflecting a greater social struggle that exists within the United States (and Australia) to this day.
