Film Screening: Do Not Resist

Do Not Resist

Sunday, October 16 • 7:20pm • AFI Silver Theater

The Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs invites you to attend a special screening of DO NOT RESIST on Sunday, October 16th at the AFI Silver Theater, 8633 Colesville Rd, Silver Spring, MD 20910. After the screening, a panel of criminal justice experts, including Wesley Lowery of The Washington Post and Ryan Reilly of The Huffington Post, will host a short Q&A session and discussion. A donation of $10/person is requested and can be made online at 


Winner of the Best Documentary award at the Tribeca Film Festival, Do Not Resist starts on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri as the community grapples with the death of Michael Brown and offers a stunning look at the current state of policing in America and glimpses into the future of increasingly militarized forces. From a ride along with a South Carolina SWAT team, to a look inside a police training seminar that teaches the importance of “righteous violence,” to the floor of a congressional hearing on the proliferation of armed-combat equipment, a picture emerges of a future of high-end weapons and battlefield tactics in communities large and small. 

We hope to see you there!
