Special Screening: Let It Fall w/ Oscar-winner John Ridley

  • Roxy Theater 2 6th Avenue New York, NY, 10013 United States (map)

Join us on the afternoon of Sunday, December 17 as the New York Film and Video Council presents a very special screening of Let It Fall with its Oscar-winning director, John Ridley.

Let It Fall is the gripping story of 1992 Los Angeles uprising.  Tracing its roots through the decade prior to the famous events, the film weaves heartbreaking first-hand accounts from black, white, Asian, and Hispanic Angelinos of all classes, caught up in a cascade of rising tension, culminating in an explosion of anger and fear after the Rodney King verdict.

John Ridley—the Oscar-winning screenwriter of 12 Years A Slave and the creator of the American Crime  television series—has made a deeply nuanced and powerful film, garnering rave critical acclaim and becoming one of the year's must-see theatrical documentaries.

After the screening, join John and the NYFVC to continue the discussion and what it means for us all today over free drinks and light food at a nearby tavern with thanks to Lincoln Square Productions.
