The Screen Guide

When seven-year old black boy Gavin Cato was accidently run over and killed by an ultra orthodox Jewish driver in New York in 1991, what followed would shatter two families and divide an entire community. In the middle of it all was an Australian who was in the wrong place at the wrong time and became a victim of one of the ugliest moments in New York's history. Along with young Gavin, Melbourne man Yankel Rosenbaum came to symbolise the racial and religious tensions between black and white, Jews and gentiles in New York City. This year is the 20th anniversary of the Crown Heights riots and Compass has exclusive access to this extraordinary story told by the people who lived it.
