Sierra Pettengill — USA — 2022 — 91'
Welcome to RIOTSVILLE, USA, a turning point in American history where the protest movements of the late 1960s came into conflict with increasingly militarized police departments. Focusing on unearthed military training footage of Army-built model towns called “Riotsvilles,” director Sierra Pettengill reconstructs the formation of a national consciousness obsessed with maintaining law and order by any means necessary.
