CONFIDENTIAL POLICING FEATURE DOCUMENTARY

Director(s):
Charles Burnett, Nicole Lucas Haimes
Producer(s):
Nicole Lucas Haimes
Grant Year(s):
2020

This confidential feature documentary is a no-holds-barred tell-all, a first-person psychological unspooling of how a former elite anti-gang police officer went from a gung-ho cadet to a self-described monster. The film combines a vetted, unnerving, and unexpectedly candid personal narrative with investigative reporting that sheds new insight into the hidden drivers of cop culture, the ensuing barriers to justice and the ways the criminal justice system works to protect bad cops.
