Directed by Ken Burns, Sara Burns, David McMahon | 2012

This devastating new documentary explores the grave miscarriage of justice in the aftermath of what Mayor Ed Koch named “the crime of the century.” Following the rape and assault of a white jogger in Central Park in 1989, five young black and Latino men were arrested amid a wave of media sensationalism that all but cemented the public’s perception of their guilt. Legendary documentarian Ken Burns, along with his daughter Sarah Burns and her husband David McMahon, revisits the long road to their exoneration, taking a careful and timely look of a city seething with racial tensions.
