The Department of Social Sciences, Human Services, and Criminal Justice  presents

A Film Screening: Crime + Punishment,

a 2019 Emmy Award winning film

Crime + Punishment is a moving and carefully observed work that examines policing in New York City from the perspective of courageous officers who risk everything when they decide to expose racially discriminatory practices by the NYPD. The film reveals the complexity of our most pressing urban matters, from the day-to-day demands of being a police officer to community-driven protests in response to highly charged issues.

We see what happens when 12 officers break the infamous “wall of silence.” In this captivating cinematic investigation, we gain a deeper understanding of the everyday problems that result in disastrous consequences for communities of color. Amidst a class action lawsuit over illegal policing quotas, Crime + Punishment unfolds as a masterful example of filmmaking, both in craft and content. It was winner of Sundance’s Special Award

The screening is followed by a question and answer session with the filmmaker, Stephen Maing, and officers.

This event is free and open to the public.

The event is being co-sponsored by BMCC’s Project Impact.
