The 1971 Attica prison uprising is a signature moment of radical resistance for the American Civil Rights movement. The subsequent retaking of the prison however, “the bloodiest one-day encounter between Americans since the Civil War,” is an open wound. Evidence of the Evidence explores this tortured history through a granular interrogation of its archive. Utilizing rarely seen video recordings, the film offers a ground level account of the events at Attica, but also chronicles the contemporaneous mediation and narrativization of these events. It reflects on the role that moving images play in the production of history and memory, its creation and its destruction. In an era of resurgent racism and authoritarianism throughout the West, Evidence of the Evidence is a timely and urgent work of both agit-prop and media criticism.
