About Let It Fall: L.A. 1982-1992

A two-hour documentary that explores the city-wide violence that began April 29, 1992, when the verdict was announced in the Rodney King case. Let It Fall delves beyond the conflict between law enforcement and the black community to look at tensions across the city as a whole; it traces the roots of the civil unrest to a decade before the uprising. The documentary features exclusive interviews with eyewitnesses and people directly involved in the events from diverse neighborhoods across the city, including black, white, Hispanic, Korean and Japanese Americans.
