L.A BURNING: The Riots 25 Years Later explores the lives of the people at the flashpoint of the LA riots, 25 years after the uprising made national headlines and highlighted the racial divide in America. The film views the infamous intersection and the events that transpired there through the lens of the people who converged on the corner that has become known as the flashpoint and the people who called the place home long before the fires burned and brought national attention to their doorsteps. The film introduces the back-stories and long-term effects of a cross section of key actors at Florence and Normandie-rescuers, victims, law enforcement, rioters, media- and others. Twenty-five years later, the film shows reunions at the flashpoint; victims looking to overcome their fears as they return to the scene that has caused so much pain in their lives. And the film finds those who committed violent acts in a moment of anger and despair, reflecting on their actions and how their lives have been affected by their involvement. While this film is not limited to the actions of the Normandians who lived through the tumult, it\'s viewed through the lens of the people who experienced life-altering moments during the riots that began near or at the intersection of Florence and Normandie.

The 1970s was an extraordinary time of rebellion, of questioning every accepted idea: political activism, hedonism, protests, the sexual revolution, the women\'s movement, the civil rights movement, the music revolution, rage and liberation. Every standard by which we set our social and cultural clocks was either turned inside out or thrown away completely and reinvented. For American cinema, the 1970s was an era during which a new generation of filmmakers created work for a new kind of audience--moviegoers who were hungry for stories that reflected their own experiences and who were turning their backs on aged old studio formulas. As a result, emerging filmmakers influenced by foreign directors such as Godard, Kurosawa and Fellini coupled with the social climate and a struggling studio system, converged to create a new kind of moviemaking. Through their choice of material, filmmakers such as Francis Ford Coppola, Martin Scorsese, Robert Altman, Peter Bogdanovich, William Friedkin, Roger Corman and Paul Schrader revolutionized mainstream movies and for the first time personal visions were coming out of the studio system.
