The film follows the NYPD12, a group of black and Latino whistleblower cops, as they break the silence and speak out against an illegal “quota system” that continues to dictate policy in their precincts. The film exposes the harmful policing practices that have plagued precincts and disproportionately affected poor communities of color in New York City for decades. Stephen Maing is an Emmy-nominated Brooklyn-based filmmaker.
He has directed films for the The New York Times, Time Magazine, The Nation, The Intercept and Field of Vision. His feature documentary High Tech, Low Life told the fascinating story of two of China’s first dissident citizen-journalists fighting state-monitored censorship, and was broadcast nationally on PBS’ award-winning series P.O.V. He is a fellow of the Sundance Institute’s Documentary Film Program, a recipient of the International Documentary Association’s Enterprise Investigative Journalism grant, and was a 2016 John Jay/Harry Frank Guggenheim Reporting Fellow. A post-screening discussion with Stephen Maing will be moderated by Professor Ricardo Miranda of Film and Media Studies.
This event is made possible by the Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences at Hunter College. The event is organized by the Film & Media Department and the IMA-MFA Program.
Light refreshments at 6pm, screening begins at 6:30pm.
