DO NOT RESIST

Directed by Craig Atkinson
70 min | 2016 | USA | Not Rated

*Post-film panel with Salt Lake City Police Department Chief Brown, Community Voice Deeda Seed, Representative Paul Ray District 13, and moderated by Laura Jones.

Starting on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown, Do Not Resist offers a stunning look at the current state of policing in America and a glimpse into the future. The Tribeca Film Festival winner for Best Documentary puts viewers in the center of the action—from a ride-along with a South Carolina SWAT team, to inside a police training seminar that teaches the importance of “righteous violence,” to the floor of a congressional hearing on the proliferation of military equipment in small-town police departments—before exploring where controversial new technologies, including predictive policing algorithms could lead the field next.
