Summary: Welcometo Riotsville, USAa point in American history when the nation’s rulerspoliticians,
bureaucrats, policewere faced with the mounting militancy of the late1960s, and did
everything possible to win the war in the streets. Using training footage of Armybuilt model
towns called “Riotsvilles” where military and police were trained to respond to civil disorder, in
addition to nationally broadcast news media, director Sierra Pettengill connects the stagecraft of
“law and order” to the real violence of state practice. Recovering an obscured history whose
effects have shaped the present in ways both insidious and explosive, RIOTSVILLE, USA is a
poetic and furious reflection on the rebellions of the 1960sand the machine that worked to
destroythem.
