Operation Ceasefire: Inside a Community's Radical Approach to Gang Violence
This documentary explores whether it is possible to bring about real change when distrust and resentment have poisoned a community. Thirty years ago, a sensational murder case, allegations of excessive police force, and public outrage over stop-and-frisk policing in minority neighborhoods brought Boston to the brink of crisis. What happened next would defy stereotypes and expectations. Drawing on dramatic archival footage and candid interviews, Operation Ceasefire is a story of people who distrusted each other – cops, African-American pastors, gang members, and liberal academics – coming together to change the city, and upending notions of traditional policing in a way that is especially relevant today.
