Rubble Kings is a 2015 documentary film directed by Shan Nicholson that depicts gang violence in The Bronx in the 1970s, specifically the events leading up to and following the Hoe Avenue peace meeting.
One of the film's producers, actor Jim Carrey, stated the following during a Q&A session after the film's premiere:
The first time I saw the footage, I was completely blown away by this incredible thing that had happened, that no one knows about. A great movement towards peace, about really courageous people overcoming seemingly impossible odds and rising to love. Although I didn't grow up in that situation, I can understand that idea, and I think it's important that we all reach outside our own realms of experience and try to understand what people are going through and the things they have to overcome. It was really something I wanted to get involved with and support in any way I can.
Daniel M. Gold of The New York Times described the film as "a fascinating, valuable work of social, music and New York history, a celebration of a peaceful revolution by those who helped birth it."
