Recent events and protests have pushed the issues of police brutality and systemic racism to the forefront of public attention, with departments in communities across Canada facing reckonings. The shockingly high rates of police-related shootings and killings in Calgary give special urgency to this hard-hitting documentary by Marc Serpa Francoeur and Robinder Uppal. By going deep into several disturbing incidents that have left many victims and bereaved family members in their wake, the filmmakers highlight the crisis of accountability and lack of transparency within the city’s criminal justice system.
