Dir. Antonino D’Ambrosio | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2017 | 96 min.
Half a century ago, NYPD officer Frank Serpico stood alone against corruption in the world’s largest police force. He took a gunshot to the head, became world-famous, then disappeared into seclusion. Filmmaker Antonino D’Ambrosio (We’re Still Here, MVFF 2016) tracks down the legendary whistleblower who inspired Sidney Lumet’s hit Hollywood drama Serpico, finding him more relevant than ever and finally ready to break the silence and tell his story like he’s always wanted to tell it.
“The definitive documentary on the man who has arguably become the
world’s most famous police officer.”
– David Alm, Forbes
