Seven Days


Year: 2013
Country: USA
Run Time: 9 minutes

It is 1968. Minorities are rioting in streets across the country. The president, believing that deplorable housing conditions lay at the heart of the violence, is on his third try in two years to push a fair housing bill through Congress. On April 4th, a single gunshot rings out in Memphis. One week later, President Johnson gets his bill. SEVEN DAYS is an animated collage of 1960s media—TV, newspapers, archive photos, video, and radio—that captures what was happening in the streets, behind the doors of Congress, and in the hearts and minds of ordinary people at this watershed moment in history.
