BLACK COP

Florida Premiere

DIRECTED BY Cory Bowles

Country: Canada
Language: English

Running Time: 91min
Film Year: 2017
Category: Jordan Ressler Screenwriting Competition

Actor-director Cory Bowles (Trailer Park Boys) takes on police brutality and racial profiling with a stark satirical edge in his debut feature, Black Cop. Timely, to be sure, but Bowles also brings a new slant to these realities by framing the film through the eyes of a police officer known only as Black Cop (emerging talent Ronnie Rowe Jr. excels in this complex role).

Held by some as a race traitor for joining the police while still facing racism in his daily life, Black Cop finally has enough of the violence he’s forced to endure because of the color of his skin. Bowles satirical genius lies in Black Cop’s next move: he begins to police the white people of his town the way the Black residents are.

Combining a mix of real and staged protest footage, direct address monologues and verité style encounters with the police, Black Cop confronts injustice head on—and asks its audience to do the same.
