The Force

SUPPORT
Arizona

Sprawling, immediate, and complex, award-winning filmmaker Peter Nicks’s (The Waiting Room) vérité documentary moves like a pulsing, timely thriller. In 2014, after over a decade of federal monitoring for misconduct and civil rights abuses, the Oakland Police Department hires an earnest new police chief, in hopes of bridging an historically tense divide between its officers and the community they serve.
The Force captures everything; it hovers over Oakland’s evening skies and rides inside speeding police vehicles, granting viewers breathless firsthand access to some of law enforcement’s most dangerous jobs. With fly-on-the-wall intimacy, we see a department trapped in transition, desperate to shed its corrupt image but also challenged by an increasingly organized and urgent Black Lives Matter movement erupting right outside its doorstep. (Dir. by Peter Nicks, 2017, USA, 93 mins., Not Rated)
