ATTICA - a Documentary by Stanley Nelson and Traci A. Curry

Cinematheque Trailers

"On 9 September 1971 inmates at Attica maximum-security facility in New York State rioted and seized control of the jail, taking guards hostage. This unnervingly vivid dive into the 1971 uprising from Emmy® winning director Stanley Nelson sheds new light on the enduring violence and racism of the prison system and highlights the urgent, ongoing need for reform 50 years later. This is not history, this is America."
