You Fit The Description
‘You Fit the Description’ is a 12 minute short film that flips the script on Stop & Search. Nico, a young black man, will harness the power of his community, to teach the justice system a lesson. The film culminates in the “street trial” of a police officer.
It’s a bold, and unflinching look at our current society, where black people are targeted, racially profiled and aggresively stopped & searched.
More than just a simple role reversal, this film is about finding our humanity, and is full of depth and nuance. It’s a cry for immediate and real change in policing.
