Filmed over two years in 11 states, this film examines the increasingly disturbing realities of the rapid militarization of police forces in the United States.

Starting on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown, DO NOT RESIST – the directorial debut of DETROPIA cinematographer Craig Atkinson – 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 and 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.

 

Critic Quotes:

“A quietly seething look at present-day policing in America. An epxerience best had in a cinema.” – John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter

“A snapshot of an infuriating disconnect between power players and disenfranchised targets.” Eric Kohn, Indiewire

“A too rare kind of topical documentary: the one that makes it points through what it presents onscreen, without extra commentary.” – Matt Prigge, Metro

“HAUNTING. POWERFUL. I had to force myself to exhale.” -Radley Balko, Washington Post

“ONE OF THE MOSET RELEVANT AND VALUABLE DOUMENTARIES OF THE YEAR” -Shane Slater, Awardscircuit.com
