WINNER of the Grand Jury Prize for BEST DOCUMENTARY at the Tribeca Film Festival. An urgent and powerful exploration of the rapid militarization of the police in the United States. 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 film takes viewers from a ride-along with a South Carolina SWAT team and inside 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 – before exploring where controversial new technologies, including predictive policing algorithms, could lead the field next.
