Detroit est un drame historique américain réalisé par Kathryn Bigelow, sorti en 2017. Il revient sur les émeutes survenues à Détroit en 1967, également connues sous le nom d'émeute de la 12e rue (12th Street riot) et rébellion de 1967 à Détroit (1967 Detroit rebellion) et les événements survenus à l'Algiers Motel.

Synopsis

En juillet 1967, d'importantes émeutes ont lieu à Détroit dans le Michigan, pour protester contre la ségrégation raciale aux États-Unis et la guerre du Viêt Nam. La police de Détroit reçoit des plaintes à propos de pillages, d'incendies et de tirs d'armes à feu pendant plusieurs jours. Les forces de l'ordre et la population Afro-Américaine sont sous pression et chaque situation est susceptible de dégénérer dangereusement. C'est dans ce contexte que les forces de l’ordre encerclent l’Algiers Motel d’où semblent provenir des détonations, et où va se dérouler l'affaire du Motel Algiers. Dans ce chaos, Melvin Dismukes, un agent de sécurité privé afro-américain, tente de survivre tout en protégeant — bien mal — ses semblables. Persuadés d'avoir été visés, mus par le racisme, le sadisme et un sentiment d'impunité les policiers vont terroriser, frapper violemment, injurier les clients de l'hôtel pendant une grande partie de la nuit et en tuer trois. Justice ne sera jamais rendue.

Starr Carter, 16 ans, vit entre deux mondes très différents : elle vient d'une zone résidentielle pauvre principalement habitée par des Noirs, mais fréquente une école privée pour élèves privilégiés, majoritairement blancs. Quand un jour elle voit son meilleur ami Khalil se faire tuer sous ses yeux sans raisons par un policier blanc, tous les efforts qu'elle a fait jusqu'ici fait pour s'adapter dans ces deux mondes très antagoniques sont réduits à néant. Alors que la pression s'exerce sur elle de toutes parts pour qu'elle garde le silence sur ce qu'elle a vu, Starr est face à un dilemme cruel : se taire pour préserver sa vie, ou défendre les droits de son ami et de sa communauté.

In 2003, Maya, a young U.S. Central Intelligence Agency officer, has spent her entire brief career, since graduating from college and being recruited for the agency, focused solely on gathering intelligence related to Osama bin Laden, leader of al-Qaeda, following the terrorist organization's attack on the United States in 2001. She is reassigned to the U.S. embassy in Pakistan to work with a fellow officer, Dan. During the first months of her assignment, Maya often accompanies Dan to a black site for his continuing interrogation of Ammar al-Baluchi, a detainee with suspected links to several of the hijackers in the September 11 attacks. Dan subjects the detainee to approved interrogation techniques, i.e., stress positions, hooding, subjection to deafening noise, sleep deprivation, waterboarding, and humiliation. After failing to get al-Baluchi to give up information on an attack in Saudi Arabia, he and Maya eventually trick Ammar into divulging that an old acquaintance, who is using the alias Abu Ahmed al-Kuwaiti, is working as a personal courier for bin Laden. Other detainees corroborate this, with some claiming Abu Ahmed delivers messages between bin Laden and a man known as Abu Faraj al-Libbi. In 2005, Abu Faraj is apprehended by the CIA and local police in Pakistan. Maya is allowed to interrogate him, but he continues to deny knowing a courier with such a name. Maya interprets this as an attempt by Faraj to conceal the importance of Abu Ahmed.
