L.A. rebellion, 1992
Title on cassette label: Birth of a nation
Produced, directed and shot by Mathew McDaniel ; additional camera, Gregg Everett, Raegan Kelly
This hard-hitting documentary offers a rare view of the L.A. rebellion which erupted within minutes of the verdict that acquitted the four police officers accused of brutally beating motorist Rodney King. With the hand-held immediacy of combat coverage and set to the best of rap and hip hop, the video maker follows the events on the street, all shot at the epicenter of the rebellion where businesses burn, emotions explode and Black and Latino communities refuse to sit back and take it.
Subject King, Rodney.
