An incident at the Algiers Motel in 1967 is at the heart of the film Detroit. The incident is reenacted in uncomfortable closeup. The racist violence inflicted of a group of young black people, and the lies told to protect the white law enforcement agents is appalling. This film is another reenactment of the injustices enacted in this country as a result of hate. Sad and uncomfortable, but important.
