Review

Summer of 1981. The buildings look like they´re about to spring out of the city space and the heat is murderous. However, more suffocating than these things is the racial discrimination that has controlled the people of Liverpool for a long time. A riot by the people who cannot tolerate it anymore starts and in three days, about 500 people get arrested. Many police officers and people bleed and moan with pain. Eighteen years later, director John Akomfrah visits Liverpool. Area citizens, the reporters, the police, and the politicians take turns talking about the riot. The racist police administration, the seemingly intractable problem of unemployment, and the urban policies of the Thatcher government are blamed for this riot of unprecedented violence.
