The Force
  • Year2017
  • Duration93 min

An unassuming figure, Chief Sean Whent lies at the heart of The Force (Sundance Documentary Best Director, 2017), an exposé of the Oakland Police’s halting departmental reform. Under his leadership, the staff make impressive headway to rebuilding relations with the community they serve. Yet chronic abuse of power is hard to unlearn and a scandal threatens to destroy the delicate foundation.
