Black Cop

Director Cory Bowles
Year 2017
Run Time 91min
Genre Drama

In a powerhouse lead performance, Ronnie Rowe Jr. plays the titular Halifax police officer in Black Cop. Frustrated with the community and the system he serves, this cop lashes out, using the badge to harass the privileged white citizens on his patrol. 

Flipping the script in ways both humorous and disturbing, Cory Bowles’ feature debut is a stylistically brazen and morally ambiguous exploration of race, power and policing.

The film won 10 awards at film festivals around the world, and the John Dunning Discovery Award at the CSAs.
