Do Not Resist
Friday, November 10, 2017, 07:00pm - 09:30pm

 

This urgent documentary explores the militarization of local police departments—in their tactics, training, and acquisition of equipment—since 9/11. With unprecedented access to police conventions, equipment expos, and officers themselves, filmmaker Craig Atkinson, the son of a SWAT team member, presents an eye-popping nonpartisan look at the changing face of law enforcement in America.

 

 

“The parameters of homeland security are chillingly assessed”; “Atkinson shrewdly lets his subjects do the talking” – LA TIMES

“A troubling portrait emerges, which is all the more interesting considering that first-time documentarian Craig Atkinson is the son of a police officer who served on a SWAT team for more than a decade” – THE WASHINGTON POST

“This film that uses documentary to go deep into a world with a cinematic experience. We were excited by the directorial debut of a cinematographer who already has created a great body of work. Do Not Resist shines a light on the frightening story of the militarization of the police. In an impactful way the director uses his amazing access to look at power and force from the inside.” – 2016 TRIBECA JURY

“An eye-opening experience” – THE NEW YORKER
