A gripping Tribeca Film Festival winner

"Critics Pick! A riveting chronicle of the radical group Move’s clash with Philadelphia authorities...Seamlessly fashioned...relives an incredible chapter in American history."

- The New York Times
Jason Osder has artfully crafted a memorializing documentary about one of America’s most tragic and largely unknown civil struggles. MOVE is a black liberation group, founded in Philly, that back in ’85 had military-grade explosives dropped on their row-house leaving 11 people dead, five of which were children, and devastating 61 homes. Osder’s film reveals the brutality of the local authorities by piecing together found footage that unfolds a true American horror story. General admission. Over 18s only.
