Riotsville USA is a poetic and powerful look at how the reactions of a nation's citizens and institutions to the rebellions of the late 1960s reverberate today in the form of militarised policing, the criminalisation of protestors and police impunity.

Amid today’s shifting reckonings on power and identity and a new generation’s coming-of-age, Riotsville, USA delivers insight from a time similar to our own, urging us to understand how the machine of institutional power manages to rumble on.

This screening will also include a 30 min recorded Q&A with Sierra Pettengill (director) and award-winning broadcaster Afua Hagan.
