Filmed by the People: The First Person Look at the Capitol Riot

This treatment of the insurrection recreates the attack moment by moment, tracking the protesters mounting agitation and rage, and some rioters breaking into various fronts of the U.S. Capitol, eventually marching the Confederate flag into the building and occupying the halls of Congress. It also reveals the diverse and competing ideologies that coalesced on Jan. 6: angry Trump voters marched alongside sovereign citizens, Three Percenters, Proud Boys, and Christian Nationalists. Some rioters demonstrated solidarity with the police as others brutally assaulted officers.
The film highlights moments within the mayhem that add to the complexity of our understanding of the attack. It enables viewers to feel what it was like to be drawn into participating in this event. In this 45-minute film we see how the false narrative of electoral fraud that was stated and restated by former President Donald Trump led thousands of Americans to attack their own Capitol, and the unprecedented violence that left hundreds injured, five dead, and a shaken democracy.

    • @The Gray Fox Trumptards and Libtards are just cannon fodder for the elites agenda to created chaos in society! Trump never was a conservative at heart he was only a tool like most political leaders on both sides of the political spectrum! Humanism controls both sides of the political spectrum to the extreme left secular humanism and to the extreme right religious humanism! And political figures like trump use populist emotional and psychological tactics to manipulate their respective cattle to the slaughterhouse!

  • The only way for America to get healthy again is if the military turned on the government and takes the country back. Because if the military wont do it it's up to the citizens of this nation, trump said himself if you dont fight like hell for your country, soon you wont have a country. The military has shed their blood time after time again for our freedom, it's time for the citizens to shed theirs for the internal infection taking place all manner of corruption.

They were lied to they were willing to do whatever their leader said but he abandoned them. Trump is the worst of the worst.

To make this into a film you would’ve had to have 3 or 4 hours worth. To act like this was a clean and secure election is disgusting. Vice used to be great, shame on you. You fucking made the establishment politicians that have been screwing us for years the HEROES at the end of this. What in the hell is wrong with you guys.

This was just a small example of what could happen when government becomes corrupt. If BIDEN keeps pushing for unconstitutional policy eventually January 6th will look like child's play. Our country was made from a revolution and the founders wrote that from time to time a revolution is necessary to keep the people free!
