POLICING FLINT (17min)
Directed by Zackary Canepari and Drea Cooper
POLICING FLINT draws a complex portrait of a police department under immense strain. It’s a police force that reflects the city. Flint has been hit by major budget cuts and staffing shortages amid the backdrop of a crippling water crisis, and yet the police force is still expected to keep the citizens safe in one of the most violent cities in America.
