This year, the ACLU of Ohio is thrilled to partner with the Cleveland International Film Festival for the documentary, Power

"A cogent essay film inviting conscious engagement and reflection on a system of control that has gone largely unquestioned, "Power" is a sweeping chronicle of the history and evolution of policing in the U.S. With assured precision and deep insight, filmmaker Yance Ford ("Strong Island," U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award for Storytelling, 2017 Sundance Film Festival) compellingly argues that the perceived danger of race to the status quo is central to the origins of policing and to its unchecked expansion."
