Traffic Stop – Screenings

TRAFFIC STOP – SCREENINGS

Outcast Films is excited to announce we are working on a screening series for the Academy Award nominated film “Traffic Stop”.

Directed by Kate Davis, “Traffic Stop” provides a unique, firsthand look into how police brutality impacts so many lives today. Behind the dashboard and body-camera footage are people with stories. One of those stories is Breaion King who was part of what first started out as a routine traffic stop, but one that soon made national headlines. The film gives us an intimate view of her career, upbringing, and personal philosophies—and how one brutal encounter with the police changed all of that.

The film is 30 minutes long, making it a perfect length to show to an audience and host a “talk back” or post-screening panel. The filmmakers, Kate Davis and David Heilbroner, as well as Breaion King and her attorney, are available to be present at screenings.

Upcoming Screenings:

October 3: Northeastern University, Boston MA (Featuring David Heilbroner)

October 16:  Huston-Tillotson University, Austin, TX (Featuring Breaion King)

If you are interested in hosting a screening of “Traffic Stop” on your campus, or would like more information, please contact us at info@outcast-films.com.

Synopsis

By Blood tells the story of the “freedmen”—African Americans who trace their lineage to freed slaves who became members of various tribes, including the Seminole and Cherokee Nation—in this troubling documentary.   150 years later, the Cherokee and Seminole Nations, now wealthy tribes with land, casinos and business holdings, continue to deny tribal rights to Freedmen descendants arguing that they are not members of their tribe “by blood.”

Reviews

***By Blood is a troubling documentary.  A thought-provoking film—with extras including bonus scenes—this is recommended.  Video Librarian, Feb/March 2018       Read the full review here
