Let the Fire Burn (2013)
May 13th, 1985. I was only two years old when the MOVE bombing happened. Too young to remember and living roughly six miles away in South Philadelphia. My mother said the emotional shockwaves vibrated throughout the city, and added to racial turmoil that has always been brewing in Philadelphia. Ironically it also happened on the dime of the city’s first Black mayor, Wilson Goode. Eleven people died (including five children) and hearing fragmented stories about the incident growing up I always assumed it was a testament to the The City of Brotherly Love’s complicated issues with race. Let the Fire Burn gives a more robust story, filling in many gaps and detailing the pressure cooker of interactions that lead up to the bombing as well as what happened next.

LtFB is an ambitious effort from director Jason Osder, as the entire film is comprised of a collage of news footage, depositions, student films, hearings, commercials and press conferences. There’s no talking heads in front of a black screen, or long music montages that we have seen filling the narratives of recent documentaries. Editor Nels Bangerter pieces together a pretty linear story, using title cards sparingly and breaking the film into chapters. LtFB comes off as pretty neutral, and its fascinating to see that MOVE were not only victims, but also agitators, pushing their neighbors to a breaking point and placing the city’s leaders in a predicament that is still shocking to this day. Twenty nine years ago, Philadelphia’s leaders dropped a bomb on a row home. Yes, MOVE’s HQ looked like a crude tree house where a loud speaker spouted intense expletive filled messages at all hours, children ran nude, and they declined to use electricity but it stands for repeating that THE CITY DROPPED A BOMB ON A ROW HOME. How did we get here? Some of the film’s other explosive moments come from the testimony of former MOVE member Louise James. This woman words are like lightning and she works hard to keep her brimming emotions in check, yet they boil to the surface. Part courtroom drama, part PBS history lesson LtFB is a perfect way to immerse yourself in a dark corner of Philadelphia’s history. 
Let the Fire Burn is currently streaming on Netlfix.
