Few moments loom larger in contemporary American history than the events of January 6, 2021. With unprecedented access to the Capitol and DC Metropolitan police departments, Emmy and Peabody-winning directors Gédéon and Jules Naudet (9/11, NOVEMBER 13: ATTACK ON PARIS) examine the insurrection from the unique perspective of the heroes, first responders, and survivors of the violent attack. Featuring interviews with members of Congress, Capitol staffers, and police officers about their experiences on that calamitous day, JANUARY 6TH is an unvarnished record of the resilience and bravery of those on the scene—an urgent reminder that democracy is never something to be taken for granted. A Warner Bros/Discovery+ Release.

Scheduled to attend: Directors Jules Naudet + Gédéon Naudet
