Directed by Christine Choy and Renee Tajima-Peña | 1987
"Tajima and Choy know the words and gestures of those involved can tell the story with all the drama they need."
—The LA Times

Detroit, 1982: Chinese-American engineer Vincent Chin is beaten to death by two autoworkers who, despite confessing to the crime, go free. This riveting Academy Award-nominated documentary examines the case from all sides—and shifted the nation’s attention toward racism against Asians—touching on everything from the history of Chinese immigration to the socioeconomic realities of Detroit to the failings of the justice system.
