HOT SPOT: Nat Geo's 'LA92'

by Brief Staff  |  04.27.2017

To mark the 25th anniversary of the LA Riots, National Geographic partnered with Academy Award-winning directors Dan Lindsay and TJ Martin and producers Simon and Jonathan Chinn to create documentary film LA92. The film uses only raw and reclaimed footage—no reenactments, hosts or narration—to capture the frustration, desperation, anger and horror of the events that followed the Rodney King trial.

The documentary airs Sunday, April 30 at 9/8 c on National Geographic.
