THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED.
7PM film screening with a panel discussion immediately following moderated by Andrea Jenkins Wallace, Vice President of Artistic Affairs, in conversation with director and Anderson Ranch guest faculty Mike Shum.
Police on Trial examines one of the most pivotal events in the history of race and policing in America. Two years in the making, the documentary draws on unique on-the-ground reporting and filming, from the earliest days after George Floyd was killed, to the trial and murder conviction of Derek Chauvin, to the ongoing struggles for police accountability and reform.
Mike Shum is a filmmaker who specializes in cinematography and journalism. Shum’s work explores the ways in which we perceive and define home within contexts of historical and cultural struggle. Most recently, Shum was the writer-director and producer on the Frontline/PBS post-election special collaboration, American Voices. The broadcast film is an excerpt of a long-term project following people in the United States as they live through the COVID-19 Pandemic. In addition to these collaborations, Shum works with renowned media organizations like BBC, Al Jazeera Witness, Time Magazine, and National Geographic.
