Directed by Jason Osder | 2013

A found-footage film that unfurls with the tension of a great thriller, this award-winning documentary chronicles a harrowing day in 1985, on which a longtime feud between the city of Philadelphia and controversial radical urban group MOVE came to a deadly climax. By order of local authorities, police dropped military-grade explosives onto a MOVE-occupied rowhouse. TV cameras captured the conflagration that quickly escalated—and resulted in the tragic deaths of eleven people (including five children) and the destruction of 61 homes. First-time filmmaker Osder brings to life one of the most tumultuous and largely forgotten clashes between government and citizens in modern American history.
