From the Academy Award winning director of The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty, Detroit tells the gripping true story of one pivotal moment during the civil unrest that rocked Detroit in the summer of ’67.

In the summer of 1967, racial discrimination in Detroit reached breaking point and the city erupted into one of the largest citizen uprisings in US history. DETROIT reunites director Kathryn Bigelow and writer Mark Boal, the Oscar-winning team behind The Hurt Locker and Zero Dark Thirty as it zeroes in on one pivotal event during the civil unrest – the Algiers Motel Incident – a motel raid which spiralled out of control as police interrogated guests, ending in tragedy. A brilliant ensemble cast including John Boyega (Star Wars) and Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker, Captain America), Hannah Murray (Game of Thrones), John Krasinski (The Office) and Australian Ben O’Toole (The Water Diviner, Hacksaw Ridge) who portray the real-life people before, during and after this defining moment in their lives.

This gripping, intimate film is essential viewing – an urgent, masterful recreation of history with heartbreaking parallels to the present
