John Ridley’s Let It Fall might be a contender for Best Documentary at the 90th Academy Awards. Already gaining positive buzz, the film centers on the events leading up to the city-wide violence that began on April 29th, 1992, when the verdict was announced in the Rodney King case. Much like Ava DuVernay’s 13th, I’m predicting that this film will have a lasting impact on how we view race in America. Which is always a good thing.
Let It Fall is getting a limited theatrical release on April 21st, 2017, followed by it’s television premiere on April 28th.
