CRIME PUNISHMENT directed by Stephen Maing (USA, 112 mins, 2018)
Stephen Maing in person

Amidst a landmark class-action lawsuit over illegal policing quotas, Crime Punishment chronicles the real lives and struggles of a group of Black and Latino whistleblower cops and the young minorities they are pressured to arrest in New York City. Through innovative and cinematic shooting techniques, this film provides an intimate experience with unprecedented access to the work details, conversations, and difficult life-changing decisions of the police officers. Crime Punishment examines New York City’s police department through the insight and efforts of a group of active duty officers and a private investigator who risk their careers and safety to expose harmful policing practices which have plagued the precincts and people of NYC for decades.

Preceded by Social Side (2015, 10:15 min) by Taj Bland and Avery Broughton through Scribe Video Center’s Documentary History Project for Youth. This film examines the tense relationship between police and the community while reflecting on the impact of emotional stress on job performance.
