In honour of Black History Month, DOXA Documentary Film Festival and The Cinematheque are very proud to offer this encore screening for Vancouver audiences of Do Not Resist.
Do Not Resist exposes the political machinations that led U.S. police forces to resemble paramilitary organizations. Expertly-chosen court and news footage show the cause-and-effect relationship between bureaucratic decisions and street-level reality. But the most deeply troubling ideas examined are the shifts in attitude, as police become something akin to an occupying army. As the U.S. slides further into a fascist mentality, Do Not Resist is a necessary and critical film.
Winner of Best Documentary Award, Tribeca Film Festival 2016.
Tickets available online.
