Director John Ridley’s critically acclaimed, feature-length documentary Let It Fall takes an unflinching look at the 1992 Los Angeles uprising, tracing its roots back a decade and unfolding its history as a series of very personal decisions and very public failures. The film weaves heartbreaking firsthand accounts from Angelinos of different backgrounds and classes, caught up in a cascade of rising tension, culminating in an explosion of anger and fear after the Rodney King verdict.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992 is a passionate, important documentary about the 1992 Rodney King riots in Los Angeles, six days of chaos -- triggered by an heinous act of police brutality -- that left more than 50 people dead. Using interviews with people who were there and plenty of historical footage, the filmmakers deftly paint a picture of race relations in Southern California in the 1980s and early 1990s. Expect many disturbing images of people being beaten, sometimes quite badly, as well as dead, bloody bodies. It's tough to see some of it, but it's still must-see viewing. There's also some swearing, notably "f--k" and "s--t," as well as references to crack use and PCP.
