Craig Atkinson discusses his directorial debut, Do Not Resist (2016), an unsettling documentary on the militarization of local police departments. Filmed just as the violence in Ferguson began to erupt, Atkinson details the overuse of S.W.A.T. for mundane search warrants, and the current government grants that enable departments to buy army surplus vehicles.
Visit KQEK.com for a film review of Do Not Resist, which recently screened at Toronto's Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema, and Detropia (2015), filmed and co-produced by Atkinson.
