Twilight: Los Angeles, a film directed by Marc Levin, examines the fallout from the 1992 riots, as well as the aftermath of the Rodney King trial verdict. The film (originally seen on PBS in 2001) weaves Smith's stage performance, in which she plays 40 real-life characters, with documentary interviews and footage of then-contemporary Los Angeles.
PBS will do an encore broadcast of the film on August 24.
