Survival Skills is a lost training video from the 1980s. In it, Jim, the perfect policeman in a perfect relationship in a perfect community, gets in over his head when he​ tries to resolve a domestic violence case. Before long, the ugly underbelly of the ‘Good Guys in Blue’ begins to expose itself and Jim decides to take matters into his own hands. 

 

As we live in one of the most tumultuous times for law enforcement since the 60s, Survival Skills presents a searing critique of the police force while using a mind-bending, imaginative dark parodic tone mixing The Blair Witch Project with the retro nostalgia of Pleasantville and the witty quality of The Truman Show.
