PN 68: Policing in “Flint Town”
Netflix’s new 8-part series “Flint Town” follows the city’s police department as they cope with a depressed economy, high crime and a water crisis over the course of 2016. Pure Nonfiction host Thom Powers interviews the three directors of “Flint Town” – Zackary Canepari, Drea Cooper and Jessica Dimmock – in front of a live audience at New York’s IFC Center. Canepari and Cooper previously made the Flint based documentary “T-Rex” about Olympic boxer Claressa Shields. Dimmock previously directed “The Pearl” about four transgendered women.
Pure Nonfiction is distributed by the TIFF podcast network.
