UPDATE 3/12: We have recorded the interview and it is now available on podcast. You can find the podcast here. Enjoy!
Thursday March 12–I talk to Atiq Zabinski and Kelly Stuart, collaborators on the documentary Defended in the Streets. Kimani’s Story. It’s a movie about the death of Kimani Gray, a young man of color whose shooting by the NYPD has raised questions about police conduct. We’ll talk about Stop & Frisk, NYPD culture, the presumption of innocence, and the obstacles to making a documentary film in the city of New York. We’ll be web-casting on mywbcr.com beginning at 8 PM, or you can wait for the pod-cast.
