Directed by Stanley Nelson & Traci A. Curry | 2021

In “the latest from nonfiction national treasure Stanley Nelson” (Filmmaker magazine), survivors, observers, and expert government officials recount the 1971 uprising at the Attica Correctional Facility. This documentary, co-directed by Nelson, a three-time Emmy winner, and Traci A. Curry, recounts the violent five-day standoff between mostly Black and Latino inmates and law enforcement. The story, which gripped America as it happened, highlights the urgent, ongoing need for reform 50 years later. The film screens as part of BAM's weekend-long celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
