Directed by Peter Nicks | 2017

This gripping documentary, and winner of this year’s Sundance documentary prize for Best Director, takes viewers inside the troubled Oakland Police Department during a period of turmoil and upheaval. Filmed over the course of two years beginning in 2014, director Peter Nicks charts the shake-ups that ensue as an idealistic new police chief attempts to clean up the scandal-plagued department and restore community trust. But a series of police brutality incidents, the rise of Black Lives Matter, and bombshell allegations soon reveal how difficult reform may be. With startling immediacy and a vérité even-handedness worthy of Frederick Wiseman, The Force offers a vital look at the ins and outs, failings and challenges of policing in the 21st century.

A Kino Lorber release.
