The subject of Stanley Nelson’s documentary Attica is the 1971 Attica prison riot, one of the largest in United States history. Attica examines the inhumane conditions and rampant racism within the prison, which led the inmates to rise up, take hostages, and attempt to negotiate with the outside world. Using footage from the events, as well as interviews with former inmates and relatives of corrections officers, Attica is a harrowing film that still feels all-too relevant.
