Starting on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown, DO NOT RESIST, the directorial debut of DETROPIA cinematographer Craig Atkinson, offers a stunning look at the current state of policing in America and a glimpse into the future.

The Tribeca Film Festival winner for Best Documentary, DO NOT RESIST puts viewers in the center of the action, from a ride along with a South Carolina SWAT team, to a police training seminar that teaches the importance of “righteous violence,” to the floor of a congressional hearing on the proliferation of military equipment in small-town police departments. Ultimately the film explores a vast evolution of the culture of policing in America, highlighting a dire need for change.
