The New York Times: Day of Rage: How Trump Supporters Took the U.S. Capitol | Visual Investigations. (YouTube, 40:32min)

“The Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol was perhaps the most widely documented act of political violence in history. The New York Times obtained, analyzed and mapped out thousands of cellphone videos, police bodycam recordings and internal police audio to provide the most complete picture to date of what happened — and why. Our Oscar-shortlisted documentary “Day of Rage” charts in chilling detail how the peaceful transition of power was disrupted by rioters who stormed a seemingly impenetrable seat of government.

The team behind “Day of Rage” will release scenes and other reporting that were left on the cutting room floor on the film’s Twitter account, @dayofrage.”
