The System The Movie
Vastly different lives and perspectives become intertwined when a police officer suffering from recurring post-traumatic stress disorder shoots a deaf African-American child, exposing layers of corruption and racial tension within the political, judicial and prison systems. After the system fails to bring justice, the father of the slain youth contemplates taking matters into his own hands. His decision leads to a crescendo of exasperation that forever will change the lives of everyone involved.
Written and directed by Irin Daniels, The System provides a thought-provoking commentary on corruption, racism, and prejudice, as well as the multi-layered intricacies and complexities from both sides of the issues.
