An explosive examination of race relations in Canada, Nova Scotia director Cory Bowles' incendiary debut feature follows an African-Canadian cop who is racially profiled (by his own police force) while off duty in his home city of Halifax. His growing frustration and indignation with Canadian society's racial divide soon lead him to take justice into his own hands. He may have justifiable and intense frustrations, but what will be the consequences of his actions? Moreover, can he himself justify them «by any means necessary»? Bowles' film combines a gritty street realism with stylish passages filled with a startling poetry of anguish and anger, and features a powerful performance by Ronnie Rowe. Black Cop's bold confrontation with unappealing truths about today's society makes for hard-hitting drama. A multiple award winner (Best Film and Best Director, 2017 Atlantic Film Festival; Best Canadian Feature, 2017 Vancouver International Film Festival),

Q&A with filmmaker Cory Bowles, and post-screening reception sponsored by the Embassy of Canada, Washington, D.C. follows the screening.
