WRITTEN BY David Heilbroner
DIRECTED BY Kate Davis and David Heilbroner

This moving documentary tells the story of the 1969 Stonewall riots in a way that both thoroughly captures the homophobic sentiments prevalent at the time and the scope of the event’s impact on the gay rights movement. Told by Stonewall patrons, Village Voice reporters and the cop who led the raid, the film constructs a complex picture of the events, aided by archive footage of anti-gay propaganda from the era and rare video from the events.
