For our May free film screening, we are proud to show the FBFF 2017 Best of Fest Winner, “Detroit Under STRESS.” This documentary feature film is a relevant, balanced, and at times, difficult exploration of the racial tensions that mounted after the Detroit police department launched a secret decoy unit in 1971. Read below for more details!
*Please note that this film is best suited for adult audiences only.

Doors Open at 6:00pm
Film Screening Starts at 7:00pm (come early for dinner!)
Screening Runtime: 1hr 25min
Suggested Audience: Ages 18+ (strong language, violence, adult content)

Synopsis for “DETROIT UNDER S.T.R.E.S.S.”:
“In 1971, Detroit launches a secret police decoy unit to combat the explosive robbery and homicide rates. These officers find themselves in an impossible situation, trapped in a racially charged city, and are labeled judge, jury, and executioner.

After the first year of operations, Detroit becomes the city with the highest police-civilian fatal shootings and the highest police officer deaths. For the first time, hear the untold story of the Detroit Police Department’s STRESS unit.

Told by the STRESS officers, civil rights leaders, and historians who finally explain this complex story that laid the foundation for the law and order vs civil rights battle.

Stop the Robberies Enjoy Safe Streets.”
