Top contributor Jay Christensen brings us this masterpiece of a drone reel from his home city of Minneapolis. The film uses a variety of drone footage to show the empty downtowns due to the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown, as well as the protests, rioting, and devastation following the death of George Floyd at the hands of four Minneapolis police officers on Memorial Day, which triggered some of the most serious racial unrest in the USA in decades.  Also seen are empty Target Field, US Bank Stadium, Target Center, Excel Center, and Allianz Field.
