Screening of “Black Cop” for the Over-the-Rhine International Film Festival and panel discussion with TT Stern-Enzi and Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac.
It’s not easy being a black cop. For one black cop already struggling between duty and moral obligation, it only gets worse when is profiled by his colleagues off-duty, nearly getting himself killed in the process – pushing him over the edge. Armed with the power of his badge, an antagonizing radio show for company, and some good old-fashioned rage – the stage is set for a whirlwind day filled with vendetta and just desserts – as black cop targets the very community that justifies his colleagues –on a collision course with his own identity.
Following the screening, TT Stern-Enzi will host a panel discussion featuring Cincinnati Police Chief Eliot Isaac. The panel discussion is part of Stern-Enzi's Truth and Reconciliation project exploring representation in film, made possible by ArtsWave Truth and Reconciliation grant funding.
See the film and panel in person at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center or stream the film and join the discussion online.
