Do Not Resist (2016)


Location: Browning Cinema, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

Do Not Resist Still

Part of the ScreenPeace Film Festival 2017

Directed by Craig Atkinson

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. The Tribeca Film Festival winner for Best Documentary puts viewers in the center of the action. 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, this film explores where controversial new technologies, including predictive policing algorithms, could lead the state of policing in the future.

Introduction and discussion led by Jason Springs, Associate Professor of Religion, Ethics, and Peace Studies, Director of Doctoral Studies at the Kroc Institute.
