About this item
The late 1990s and early 2000s witnessed a tragic number of instances of police brutality committed against African-American men. Several cases directly involved the New York City Police Department, such as the 1997 assault and battery of Abner Louima and the 1999 shooting of Amadou Diallo. This documentary from filmmaker Seyi examines these and other cases of police brutality triggered by racial profiling, via interviews with individuals with direct ties to the cases at hand. Interviewees include civil-rights activist Al Sharpton, various NYPD officers and the victims' heartbroken familiy members. Although the film primarily focuses on the victims themselves and advocates tirelessly working to end police brutality, the director's careful examination of many sides of this complex social issue makes the effort unique, balanced and fair. ~ Sandra Bencic, All Movie Guide.
