The Force

Opens Oct 10, 2019

Ragtag Cinema and Race Matters, Friends present The Force by director Peter Nicks on Oct. 10th at 6pm with a discussion with Traci Wilson-Kleekamp of Race Matters, Friends, MU Law Professor David Mitchell, and Columbia Police Department Chief of Police Geoff Jones.

Free and open to the public.

The Force goes deep inside the embattled Oakland Police Department as it struggles to reform amid a powder keg of local controversy. The film finds itself at the simultaneous rise of a reformation-minded police chief, the emergence of the Black Lives Matter movement, and a growing public demand for police accountability and racial justice in the city and across the nation.
