"Foster's superb documentary is part anthropology,
part history and completely on message for here and NOW.
The film's topic is extraordinarily relevant as racial profiling has certainly become the center of explosive controversy
in media and society. A must see!"
Ricky Bernstein, Berkshire Human Rights Series; BLACK LIVES MATTER
PROFILED provides a searing look into racial profiling and police brutality, two of the most burning issues of our time. Ranging from the routine harassment of minority students, to the killings and protests in Staten Island and Ferguson, Missouri, the film examines brutality cases, and remembers victims including Eric Garner, Michael Brown and Kimani Gray who are now familiar the world over.
This compelling new film
directed by Kathleen Foster, bears witness to the racist violence that remains an everyday reality for people of color in America. Moving interviews with victims' family members are integrated with revelatory analyses shared by evolutionary biologist, Joseph L. Graves, Jr. (The Race Myth) and civil rights lawyer, Chauniqua D. Young, (Center for Constitutional Rights, Stop and Frisk lawsuit).
PROFILED is a challenging examination that compels viewers toward thought provoking discussions about the roots, consequences, and solutions surrounding racial discrimination within society and law enforcement.
