Police violence has been on display in the United States since George Floyd's murder became an international story, but the problem with policing is unfortunately a global phenomenon. In this episode, Gil Kidron and Dr Rutger Vos explore five movies (three Americans, one French and one Israeli) to better understand what kind of system has human societies around the globe have put in place that produce the same result, over and over in so many places. The movies are: Do The Right Thing (1989), La Haine (1995), Crash (2004), Ajami (2009) and Fruitvale Station (2013).
