Women in Blue
Filmed from 2017-2020, Women In Blue follows the Minneapolis Police Department’s first female police chief as she works to reform the department to restrain bad cops and diversify the ranks by increasing the role of women.
After an officer-involved shooting forces the chief to resign, the new male chief selects only men as his top brass. Women In Blue offers an unprecedented view into the inner workings of the Minneapolis Police Department, chronicling a community grappling with racism and a troubled history of police misconduct long before an MPD officer killed George Floyd in May of 2020.
'No film at AFI Docs (Festival) this year was more timely than this one… Women in Blue reminds us that women officers are statistically way less likely to be involved in excessive force situations. This is a compelling look at a group of women who are dedicated to their job and transforming the department.' - Mike McGranaghan, The Aisle Seat
