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.

Directed by Stefan Forbes, the documentary premiered at Toronto International Film Festival, and went on to screen at DOC NYC. Hold Your Fire opens in theaters and VOD on May 20th, 2022.

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.
