CRIME + PUNISHMENT

Dir. Stephen Maing | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2018 | 114 min.

Discussion to follow with film subject Edwin Raymond

Meet the NYPD12: a group of whistleblower officers who risk everything to expose racially discriminatory policing practices and smash the blue wall of silence. Quota-driven arrests have been outlawed, but these officers have proof to the contrary.  To capture it, Emmy-nominated director Stephen Maing equips each brave officer with a hidden camera. Stunning cinematography, emotional testimony, and intimate access lay bare the institutional bias that taints officer morale and erodes public trust.
