It’s been 25 years since Los Angeles erupted in rioting in the wake of the verdicts in the Rodney King beating trial, and a number of new documentaries are revisiting the event, starting tonight with “Burn, Motherf*cker, Burn,” which premieres on Showtime at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

“The Lost Tapes: LA Riots” premieres on Smithsonian Channel April 23 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. “Let It Fall: Los Angeles 1982-1992” opens in theaters April 21 and airs on ABC April 28 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

TVWeek Open Mic writer Hillary Atkin interviewed a number of the filmmakers behind the projects — Jeanmarie Condon, executive producer of “Let It Fall”; Sacha Jenkins, director of “Burn, Motherf*cker, Burn”; and Tom Jennings, director of “The Lost Tapes: LA Riots.”
