IFC Films debuted the official trailer for Hold Your Fire, a new documentary billed as the untold story of the longest hostage siege in NYPD history and the birth of modern hostage negotiation.
In 1973, four young African-American men stealing guns for self-defense were cornered by the NYPD. Could visionary police psychologist Harvey Schlossberg convince his superiors to do the unthinkable – negotiate with “criminals” – and save twelve hostages from a violent bloodbath? In never-before-seen film and eye-opening interviews, Hold Your Fire has the potential to revolutionize American policing.
