Black Cop

True North | Future//Present

In Black Cop, a police officer’s frustration with the status quo boils over. With tension growing between communities, and Black Lives Matter putting the heat on law enforcement, the title character is torn between his affinity for the badge and the colour of his skin—so he decides to take matters into his own hands. Changing the priority of his targets from black to white, he embarks on a spree of vengeance, starting with a fellow cop who is hassling black teens for no good reason. Will he take things too far? How long can he keep it up without being caught? Just where will his moral compass lead him?

With its provocative incorporation of dash-cam and chest-cam footage as well as black-box theatre monologue, Cory Bowles’ debut feature is as stylistically bold as it is politically charged. Ronnie Rowe Jr. gives a powerfully magnetic lead performance, maintaining a palpable intensity and urgency throughout. Sure to spark conversation, the film stands pointedly between the satirical and the dead serious.
