Afro Prairie Film Festival: Black Cop

Sat, Feb 24 / 9:30 pm
Directed by Cory Bowles
2017, Canada, 91 min

“Black Cop” is just one of many names slapped on the lead character in director Cory Bowles (Trailer Park Boys)’ film. He also gets called a sellout, a rogue police officer, a dirty cop, a bogeyman, and an avenger. Sick and tired of witnessing – and living – the systematic abuse of black people, Black Cop (Ronnie Rowe Jr.) rejects peaceful advocacy, instead inflicting on the white oppressor what the oppressor has inflicted on his people: the violent abuse of power. By consciously and calculatingly taking control of the terror rather than submitting to it, Black Cop reveals its protagonist as a conundrum. – Magali Simard, TIFF

Presented in Partnership with the Afro Prairie Film Festival & Black Space Winnipeg.
