Grace Lee's interactive documentary website and short film reveals new insights into the 1992 unrest.
K-TOWN'92 is an interactive documentary website and short film by Peabody Award winning filmmaker Grace Lee that reveals new insights into the 1992 Los Angeles riots through untold stories of diverse Angelenos in LA's ionic Koreatown, then and now. These are the stories that the media didn't know or didn't bother to tell. You can view K-TOWN'92 as a free-standing interactive documentary website.
A 15-minute companion documentary short, K-TOWN'92 Reporters, explores media coverage at the city's paper of record during the 1992 civil unrest. At that time, Hector Tobar, Tammerlin Drummond, and John Lee reported from the field for the Los Angeles Times. Twenty-five years later, they revisit their stories and impressions of those tumultuous events, and reflect on the media coverage they helped create.
K-TOWN'92 Reporters will air nationally on the WORLD Channel in May. You can also view it online here:
