Fires in the Mirror In the film Fires in the Mirror there is the fictive world of the play this world of the play is set to be as if it were real life as if it were candid shots of the interviews it portrays The scenes have a sense of familiarity in the fact that you can see yourself in an office or a restaurant or even your own home but the play itself is unfamiliar seeing as how I never heard about the riots when I was younger and I had never heard of the play or the playwright till taking this class The film and the play are for the most part set in New York or to be specific Crown Heights in Brooklyn The film depicts the lives of many characters that were interviewed and were a part of the riots in Crown Heights Some were activist and some were just caught in the crossfire Some of the characters in my opinion were involved to fuel the fire you might say In my opinion that is what the characters of Al Sharpton and Angela Davis did but the main person to fuel the fire was a man named Richard Green when he told Harry Rice to gather the youth of the area In my view of the play I saw this as an attempt to incite a riot The main idea behind these people was that they thought that know one cared but you see how race power turf and tribes come into play throughout the entirety of the play With living in the south I understand the struggle with many of these beliefs that people fight over Im not saying its right but its a common occurrence and it is portrayed in the characters in the film This play told the story of how a man lost a son and segments of the community
