In The Hour Of Chaos (doc, 105min) by Bayer Mack –

In the Hour of Chaos is a American documentary film directed by Bayer Mack. It details the life and various trials of the Reverend Martin Luther King Sr. (“Daddy King”), including his violent, poverty-stricken upbringing in rural Georgia, the assassination of his oldest son (civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.), the drowning of his younger son Alfred Daniel Williams King and the shooting death of his wife, Alberta Williams King.

Set against a backdrop of sociopolitical intrigue and anarchy spanning three generations of the King family, the film also details major domestic conflicts that have impacted the American public during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s.

The film’s voice cast uses first-person narration sourced from autobiographies and biographies about Daddy King, family attorney Murray M. Silver and other King relatives and associates.
