Starting on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown, Do Not Resist offers a stunning look at the current state of policing in America and a glimpse into the future.

The Tribeca Film Festival winner for Best Documentary puts viewers in the center of the action — from a ride—along with a South Carolina SWAT team and inside a police training seminar that teaches the importance of “righteous violence” to the floor of a congressional hearing on the proliferation of military equipment in small—town police departments — before exploring where controversial new technologies including predictive policing algorithms could lead the field next.
