Q&A with director Cai Shangjun and screenwriter Gu Xiaobai.

On the frigid Sino-Russian border, where fortunes are made overnight, unemployed middle-aged police informant Bo (Huang Bo) stumbles across a gun, and decides to try for a big break of his own as a stickup man. Shortly after he goes on the lam in eastern Russia, where a one-night stand turns into something more complicated, and Bo discovers the possibility of something to live for even as his time may be running out. A breakout role for pop singer Bo, awarded at the Shanghai International Film Festival.

Special Sneak Preview of 'COPWATCH'

Filmmakers in attendance.

Copwatch is the true story of We Copwatch, an organization whose mission is to film police activity as a non-violent form of protest and deterrent to police brutality. Director Camilla Hall profiles several We Copwatch members, including Kevin Moore, who filmed the arrest of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, and Ramsey Orta, the man who filmed Eric Garner’s fatal Staten Island arrest in the devastating video that has galvanized protestors and activists nationwide. In her powerful directorial debut, Hall crafts an intriguing and incredibly timely profile of citizen-journalist-activists who are seeking to disrupt the ever-present challenge of police violence.
