“An eye-opening experience”

The New Yorker

Shot over 11 years, this pertinent documentary picks up at the Ferguson, Missouri riots, and travels across America in a thorough exposition of the insidious attitudes and behaviours that have come to define American policing culture.

Director Craig Atkinson takes the audience beyond police lines, providing insight into the individuals and institutions embroiled in the issue, and painting an intimate portrait of those affected by the inordinate racism and brutality.

Urgent and unsettling, this documentary provides an abrupt reminder of the ongoing challenges facing contemporary society.
