Documentary by Stumpsfilm (Documentary) Producer/Director/Editor RIOT is an independent documentary film by Kevin McLaughlin. The work chronicles the city of Newark, New Jersey, and the many ways it was affected by the civil disturbance that took place there in the summer of 1967. Today, it’s hard to believe that an event that few people remember or know anything about could have had such a huge impact on millions of people. That’s the story that this film attempts to tell. While the rioting killed 26 people, and certainly had a major affect on the families of those people, countless others were affected in many ways. Hundreds of family businesses were destroyed. Many thousands of people were displaced, and the white flight that was already underway was accelerated exponentially. That movement of people reverberated throughout the state, spurring development much farther out into the suburbs than it might have ever gone otherwise. The story can be considered a crystal ball for communities like Ferguson and Baltimore, where current-day conflicts threaten to thrust those cities into a similar downward spiral.
