THE FORCE @ 7:00pm
Sprawling, immediate, and complex, Peter Nicks’s vérité documentary moves like a pulsing, timely thriller. In 2014, after over a decade of federal monitoring for misconduct and civil rights abuses, the Oakland Police Department hires Chief Sean Whent … in hopes of bridging a historically tense divide between its officers and the community they serve. The Force captures everything; it hovers over Oakland’s evening skies and rides inside speeding police vehicles, granting viewers breathless firsthand access to some of law enforcement’s most dangerous jobs. With fly-on-the-wall intimacy, we see a department trapped in transition, desperate to shed its corrupt image but also challenged by an increasingly organized and urgent Black Lives Matter movement erupting right outside its doorstep. –Harry Vaughn, Sundance Film Festival (2017, 93 min, DCP)

+ DETROIT @ 8:45pm
Director Kathryn Bigelow (The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty) and screenwriter Mark Boal reteam for this gripping docudrama about the Detroit race riots of July 1967, which engulfed the city for five days after the public were outraged by the brutality of a police raid on an unlicensed bar. Discover the truth behind one of the darkest moments in American history. Starring John Boyega, Will Poulter, Algee Smith, Jacob Latimore, Jason Mitchell, Hannah Murray and Kaitlyn Dever, with John Krasinski and Anthony Mackie. (2017, 142 min, DCP)
