The Film Center’s website offers this description:
“Media artists and social activists Jodi Darby, Julie Perini, and Erin Yanke’s film speaks to the history of police violence in our society, providing a framework for understanding the systems of social control in Portland and its history of exclusion laws, racial profiling, redlining, and gentrification practices. . . . [They] explore alternatives to current policing practices and consider strategies for community safety that do not employ constant surveillance and unneeded violence.”
I talked to the filmmakers about the history of the police, and about my work with Rose City Copwatch. I’m excited to see the fished version.
