Twenty-five years after the verdict in the Rodney King trial sparked several days of extreme protests in Los Angeles, filmmakers examine that tumultuous period through rarely seen archival footage. With St. Louis in the midst of 100 days of action in response to the non-conviction of Jason Stockley for murdering Anthony Lamar Smith in 2011, FoodSpark is teaming with Black Cinema Club and Artist Art to screen LA92, which looks at the events of 1992 from a multitude of vantage points, bringing a fresh perspective to a pivotal moment that reverberates so much with today's movement.
