Cory Bowles (Trailer Park Boys) presents a brilliant social satire exploring racism, police abuse and social media. Black Cop is a model police officer who never questions the racist system he protects until he’s a victim of it, at which point he unleashes all his rage onto the privileged white community. Using eclectic film techniques (found footage, theatrics), Cory Bowles delivers an extremely powerful first feature.IN PRESENCE OF THE DIRECTORIN COMPETITION
