Synopsis

It's time we knew.

In the summer of 1967, racial discrimination in Detroit reached breaking point and the city erupted into one of the largest citizen uprisings in US history. From Academy Award-winning director Kathryn Bigelow (Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker), Detroit zeroes in on one pivotal event during the civil unrest – the Algiers Motel Incident – a motel raid which spiralled out of control as police interrogated guests, ending in tragedy. A brilliant ensemble cast including John Boyega (Star Wars) and Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker, Captain America) portray the real-life people before, during and after this defining moment in their lives. This gripping, intimate film is essential viewing – an urgent, masterful recreation of history with heartbreaking parallels to the present.
