USA | 112 min | NR | Dir. Stephen Maing

This film is part of our Social Cinema series in collaboration with the Havens Center for Social Justice.

Q&A after the film facilitated by Freedom Inc.

Amidst a landmark class action lawsuit over illegal policing quotas, Crime + Punishment chronicles the remarkable efforts and struggles of a group of black and Latino whistleblower cops and the young minorities they are pressured to arrest and summons in New York City.

A highly intimate and cinematic experience with unprecedented access, Crime + Punishment examines the United States' most powerful police department through the brave endeavors of a group of active duty officers and one unforgettable private investigator who risk their careers and safety to bring light to harmful policing practices which have plagued the precincts and streets of New York City for decades.

“A triumph of documentary filmmaking.” — Tim Wu (The New Yorker)
