12th and Clairmount Trailer (2017)
Trailer for the documentary 12th and Clairmount, which screened at Doc NYC Film Festival.
In 1967, Detroit’s mostly white police department was known for its harsh treatment of black citizens. When police raided an after hours party at the intersection of 12th Street and Clairmount, the streets erupted in what’s been called a riot by some, a rebellion by others. It lasted five days and left 43 dead. This compelling documentary uses more than 400 reels of home movies, archival footage, illustrations and new oral histories to explore what happened from multiple viewpoints.
