Director John Ridley discusses his new film, Let it Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992, with fellow Director Sam Pollard. In a reexamination of the 1992 Los Angeles riots, the film traces the roots of the uprising back to a decade before the first match was lit. Weaving in first-hand accounts from Los Angeles residents of all ethnic backgrounds and classes, the film covers the explosion of anger and the fear in the streets during the aftermath of the Rodney King verdict from the perspectives of the witnesses.
