Its 1967, and police raiding a bar in Detroit trigger off the largest race riot in American history. Based on true events, and crafted by the Oscar-winning director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, Detroit is a shocking and deeply effective dramatic interpretation of what happened next in the Algiers Motel, an event that resulted in the deaths of three young black men and the brutal beatings of nine other people, including two white women at the hands of racist police officers.
