"NYC, 1981: A Most Violent Year", as Reaganism started

New York City, 1981: A Most Violent Year”, from A24 films (6 minute short).

In 1980, John Lennon had been killed near the Dakota.

In 1981, the AIDS epidemic was just beginning to be noticed.

A black man describes witnessing a kidnapping and then being kidnapped himself in the same convenience store one week later.  He resisted. The bullet is still at the base of his spine.
