In the summer of 2020, Detroiters faced unprecedented police violence as they took to the streets to protest the killings of Black people across the country. Woven together from never-before-seen footage from police body cameras, protesters and bystanders, "Detroit Will Breathe" provides an unprecedented look into the tactics of the Detroit Police, reveals shocking conversations between police officers, and offers a poignant look into what it means to be part of an integrated movement fighting for Black lives.


This screening is sponsored in part by a generous grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
