DETROIT | Official Trailer 2

The second trailer for Kathryn Bigelow's long awaited film DETROIT. Based on the Detroit riots of 1967, the film employs the notorious police raid at Algiers Motel as storytelling device.  Formerly located on Woodward avenue and Virginia Park, the hotel was demolished in the late 1970s and the land turned into a small common area. Let's hope what few truths exist don't get lost in the name of art.
