'The Fire This Time'

August 06, 1995|Kevin Thomas

This 90-minute 1994 documentary by Randy Holland (pictured) has done such a thorough job of researching the roots of the 1992 L.A. riots that the event itself takes on a quality of tragic inevitability. Holland demolishes indifference in this telling, first by sketching the difficult history of African Americans in Southern California, and then by letting the people of South Central L.A. speak for themselves (Showtime Tuesday at 11 a.m.).
