Episode Detail: Twilight: Los Angeles - Stage on Screen
Anna Deavere Smith is a provocative chameleon in “Twilight: Los Angeles,” a panoramic one-woman dramatic exploration of the 1992 L.A. riots. Smith also conceived the production and interviewed the people she impersonates---some two dozen, who experienced the disorder in a variety of ways. Among them: former L.A. police chief Daryl Gates, black activists, a Beverly Hills real-estate agent, a Korean-American store clerk and one of the jurors who acquitted the police officers who beat Rodney King.
