Doc NYC Film Festival Features 1970s-era NYPD Police Corruption

Nickie Phillips

Doc NYC festival will be held November 14-21, 2013. 

Among the many documentaries of note, don't miss Ido Mizrahy's Patrolman P,  a documentary that examines NYPD corruption during the 1970s:

Investigators leaned on a flamboyant detective named Bill Phillips who, after being caught taking bribes from an infamous madam, agreed to go undercover. Phillips secured the indictments of dozens of cops, shattering the Blue Wall of Silence. But then he was charged with a crime that put him behind bars for three decades. Was it a conspiracy?

A complex and deeply insightful thinker about subjects as diverse as feminism, Marxist methodology, migration and American hippies, the 82-year-old, Jamaican-born Hall is one of the most inspiring voices of the post-war Left.
