It is the defining cultural tale of modern America – a saga of race, celebrity, media, violence, and the criminal justice system. And two decades after its unforgettable climax, it continues to fascinate, polarize, and even, yes, develop new chapters. From Peabody and Emmy-award winning director Ezra Edelman, it’s “O.J.: Made in America.”
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoO.J.: Made in America, Pt. 1||To many observers, the story of the crime of the century is a story that began the night Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman were brutally murdered outside her Brentwood condominium. But to truly grasp the significance of what happened not just that night, but the epic chronicle to follow, one has to travel back to much different, much earlier origin points.||1:32:03||$4.99||View in iTunes|

A world where celebrity was power, and where OJ - race be damned - was one of the most popular figures around. But just a few miles away from his Rockingham estate in Brentwood was a very different reality. A reality lived by millions of other black people at the hands of the Los Angeles Police Department and its chief, Daryl Gates.||1:37:07||$4.99||View in iTunes|

It was a gruesome murder scene, clearly the result of a violent confrontation that had left two people dead - one of whom, they'd quickly discover, was the estranged wife of O.J. Simpson. It was just the start of a chapter of American history like none other, one that would lay bare the realities of race, power, the legal system, the media, and so much more in Los Angeles, California and far beyond.||1:35:10||$4.99||View in iTunes|

It would be like nothing before it, nor anything that's come since, and reshape the landscape of the media, and, truly, American culture along the way. It would also be the fight of O.J. Simpson's life.||1:34:22||$4.99||View in iTunes|

Simpson had been found not guilty of all charges. But as the reaction in the courtroom, across Los Angeles, and across the country showed, it was also much, much more than that. Meanwhile, it was also time for O.J. to go home. But if Simpson had hoped that he could return to any semblance of the life he'd enjoyed before the murders, he would quickly learn how much had changed.||1:39:31||$4.99||View in iTunes|

Fascinating ... even after 20+ years
Congrats to Ezra Edelman for "filling in the blanks" for everything before, during and after the Trial of the Century. Certainly changed my perspective from what I believed in 1994 to what I think I know now in 2016. 7.5 hours never felt so quick. This documentary will draw you in from the first minute to the last.
Compelling perspective of a troubled mind and the social consciousness of a society. Amazing documentary.
