Spike Lee directs this quietly gripping documentary exploring the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, in which four African-American girls were murdered. Lee uses the incident to explore race relations and civil rights in the 1960s, and examine how tragic events like these reverberate through the decades to today. An unflinching look at the not-so distant past that should be required viewing for all.

Expert Review:
Acclaimed director Spike Lee uses a single tragedy, the 1963 bombing of a church in Birmingham, as a lens through which to view the larger Civil Rights movement. The families of the four victims, the namesake girls, along with many others who lived through this period all reflect on the chain of events that culminated in this horrific act. Lee, whose work is usually quite confrontational about issues of race, here uses a steady, tender touch. By Daniel Schindel of ScreenPicks
