About this Event
In the fall of 1971, over 1,200 inmates at the Attica correctional facility in Attica, NY, seized the yard at the maximum-security Pr*son and demanded more humane treatment and better conditions. The largest Pr*son rebellion in U.S history resulted in the massacre of 29 inmates and the death of 10 hostages. On the 50th anniversary of the Attica uprising, Emmy-winning director Stanley Nelson and producer and co-director Traci A. Curry examine one of the most shocking incidents in the nation’s history in this in-depth and Oscar nominated documentary.
