THE POLICE TAPES
DIRECTOR: ALAN AND SUSAN RAYMOND
Q&A with Alan and Susan Raymond
In 1977, filmmakers Alan and Susan Raymond took state-of-the-art Portapak video cameras into a precinct in the then-burning South Bronx, to give people a glimpse of what went down in the courtrooms, holding cells, and mean streets. The result is a masterclass in run-and-gun photography and the ultimate ride-along, a peerless insight into the reality of life for so many in the city at that moment.
