Kate Davis and David Heilbroner’s useful-but-didactic documentary is a deep-background account of the “queer riot” outside a men’s bar in NYC’s West Village that effectively launched the gay liberation in the US. Using scant period news footage plus talking-head testimony from such witnesses as former New York mayor Ed Koch and an NYPD officer, the filmmakers tell what happened when the patrons of the Stonewall Inn on Christopher Street fought back against a police raid one hot July night in 1969. As one man remembers, “America thought we were these homosexual monsters, and we were so innocent, and oddly enough so American” (80 min.).
Director: Kate Davis and David Heilbroner
