On April 29, 1992, the Rodney King verdict was announced: four white police officers caught on videotape brutally beating an unarmed black motorist (King) were acquitted of assault. Violent protests, looting and arson lasted several days and left more than 50 people dead. Twenty-five years later, the award winning documentary LA 92 from Oscar® winning directors Daniel Lindsayand T.J. Martin(Undefeated) explores the events leading to the violence, as well as the chaos and destruction that happened. Named by Variety as one of the best films of 2017, LA 92 presents an incredibly immersive and affecting experience of a city in turmoil. Produced by two-time Oscar® winner Simon Chinn (Man on Wire) and Emmy winning Jonathan Chinn (American High), LA 92 offers a riveting glimpse of a major American city during some of its darkest days.

LA 92 is a National Geographic Documentary Film production.
