Directed by Academy Award®, Emmy and Peabody Award-winning filmmakers Andrea Nix Fine and Sean Fine, The Sixth takes you inside the insurrection through revealing moments in never-before-seen original footage and the harrowing personal experiences of Congressman Jamie Raskin, DC Metropolitan Chief of Police, Robert J. Contee III, his officers, Daniel Hodges and Christina Laury, photographer Mel D. Cole and Congressional staffer Erica Loewe. Their interwoven experiences share an unflinching account of how race, service and truth defined that pivotal day. The film is a powerful and hopeful call to action, reminding us that the fate of democracy is in all our hands.
