Traci A. Curry and Stanley Nelson's Attica utterly devastated me.

Nelson has made a career of fixing our gaze, however strong the impulse is to avert it.

It's a worthy - and sadly timely - remembrance of a singular event whose ghosts continue to haunt us.

Extraordinary archival footage... You can't just dismissive it as hyperbole.

Nelson's film cries out anew for prison reform while exposing America's deep roots of racism entrenched in the corridors of politicians, police and prisons.

A harrowing, infuriating look at racism and the abuse of power by people who see others as inhuman.
